Weekends are for all things family, fun and fitness! The two days that end (or start) the week pass too quickly and we often anticipate it so much only for it to pass too quickly. Well, how about some kid-friendly weekend activities in Singapore that facilitate bonding, easy for everyone and definitely enjoyable?
Here are some top weekend activity picks for your family!
Top Weekend Activities For Families With Kids in Singapore
Fun-filled Sundays at Novotel Singapore on Stevens
Spend your Sundays at Novotel Singapore on Stevens with a relaxing brunch followed by a fun carnival experience! The family can have a ball of time bonding over barbeque and bar bites while the children bob away on a bouncy castle, play games and enjoy activities like face painting!

Chill out at Food Exchange’s Sunday Brunch ($88++ for adults, $45++ for kids) from 12 pm to 3 pm with a delectable spread of grilled meats, seafood, curry, gourmet cheese, chocolate fondue and more.

Family Cycling Adventures
Get on two wheels or three and cycle around Singapore. This sport gives you a chance to sweat it out and explore different parts of the island.

Get Wild with the Animals at the Wildlife Reserves
One popular weekend activity is to head to Mandai where the wildlife is. There are four parks to choose from: Singapore Zoo, River Wonders, Night Safari and Bird Paradise! Besides animals which are obviously the main draw, you can also have breakfast with the animals for a special treat too!
Go on a Playground Crawl
Whichever neighbourhood you are in, there is definitely a fun playground to explore! From iconic playgrounds to those that are elevated high above ground, take your pick according to the ages of your children.
For an extended adventure, check out the best outdoor playgrounds here or the best playgrounds in neighbourhoods around Singapore. It is free, fun and memorable way for some weekend activities with kids.
Visit the Library
Children who love to read tend to be confident communicators. Our libraries have a fantastic collection of books but there’s so much more to do apart from books. Attend story-telling sessions, try 3D printing and just enjoy the comfort of being surrounding by books.
The biggest library in Singapore and one that has recently opened is Punggol Regional Library, which even has a toy library as well.
Splash at a Water Playground
Cool off from the heat and head to a water playground. There are plenty of options and some are probably a stone’s throw away from your estate. We love the one at Heights Park as well as the Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park one.
Bounce about at a Trampoline Park
Trampoline parks are weatherproof and a fun way to expend all the energy of the little ones. Check out our list for trampoline parks – where bouncing off the walls is absolutely welcome. We guarantee a good workout for the whole family!
For an especially unique experience, check out AirZone, a bouncy netted playground suspended over the atrium of a shopping mall. Get more details about AirZone.
Head to the Skate Park
Visit a Museum
Take your pick of a family-friendly museum. Rain or shine, museums are popular picks for weekend activities with kids in Singapore. They can learn, play and be engaged in a host of activities for the entire afternoon. Do take note that some of the museums require pre-booking of slots before entering. Our favourites include ArtScience Museum, Science Centre Singapore and Fort Siloso.
Fire Station Visit
Fire stations around Singapore hold open houses on Saturday mornings. These are a great opportunity for kids and families to get a peek into the operations of the Singapore Civil Defence Force. Paying a visit to your closest fire station may turn out to be one the weekend activities that you can look forward to with your kids.
Watch a Movie
Staying home can be a wonderful idea too. Rent or put on a movie for the whole family to watch together as part of a relaxing routine. Here are some movie suggestions for families with children.
Picnic at the Beach
Sun’s out? How about picnicking at the beach, build some sandcastles, kayak and just soak in the Vitamin D? For enthusiastic explorers, you could explore Singapore’s Southern Islands.
Journey to Changi Airport
You don’t need to board a flight to be at Changi Airport. It’s a family-friendly destination with attractions, food and playspots. There is also a rock-climbing wall in Terminal 3 plus more family-friendly spaces in Jewel Changi.
