With over 100 programmes to choose from, you may not know where to go for Children's Season 2022! This list will be helpful for you!
Date: 3 - 5 June 2022
The first-ever night-themed Children’s Season, The Night Is Young, runs from 28 May to 26 Jun 2022 and aims to provide cultural and educational experiences that will educate and inspire both the young and their families on Singapore’s heritage.
With 109 programmes, we wanted to make it easier for you to discover what to do! Thus here's a list of activities for this week!
National Museum of Singapore
The National Museum of Singapore (NMS) introduces Children’s Season 2022: Get Curious! Our Early Settlers where children can hop on a journey of adventure, exploration and discovery through a series of five interactive installations featuring some of Singapore’s early settlers, where children will be able to learn more about the lives and trades of some of the communities that built Singapore.
Children will go to various activity stops, including this first stop where children will get the chance to reimagine and create their favourite transport vehicles using tangem sets. They will also be able to try their hands at a magnetic rickshaw puzzle.
At the last stop of the interactive installations, children and their families are encouraged to discuss what they have learnt from the early settlers and reflect on the values these settlers have displayed.
Asian Civilisation Museum
Only this weekend (3 - 5 June), Crossing Cultures at ACM: Makan Culture will feature a whole lineup of activities at ACM exploring a plethora of cultural dining practices from the region for you to work up an appetite.
Visit the Makan Market! Try out a new picnic spot on the ACM Green and watch the starry skies with your loved ones. Don’t feel like packing your own food? Stock up on Asian snacks from ACM’s marketplace, where you can also find a range of locally-made knick-knacks.
Also starting this Friday, from 3 - 26 June, join in the fun after hours at ACM and see the galleries in a whole new light with Children’s Season at ACM: Into the Night. Families can look forward to hands-on activities, an interactive installation and a time-travelling journey in the galleries. As part of Children’s Season 2022, ACM joins the Museum Roundtable members to present children with a feast of activities, where parents can spend quality time with their children after work, immersing themselves in culture and fun.
Don't forget to take part in The Strongest of them All! Storytelling and Craft Sessions, where a storyteller embarks on a journey to discover the true meaning of strength, featuring a tiny royal princess in search of "the strongest of them all". Complete the activity with a glow-in-the-dark fabric screen printing session.
Indian Heritage Centre
Children’s Season returns to Indian Heritage Centre this June holidays! This year’s event is themed ‘Enchanting Forest’ and centres on creatures of the forest.
Join the first-ever Enchanting Forest maze, pick up a free activity kit comprising of two fun craft activities; create your own magical forest at our diorama workshop, join the storytelling sessions and more!
The God of Birds (28 May, 4, 11 June 2022) – at IHC, follows the story of the ancient legend of Garuda, a mighty eagle which protects the birds in the forest from harm, and shows compassion to fellow creatures, large and small. Kids can expect a storytelling session, a workshop to create a glow-in-the-dark Garuda, and a maze filled with curious questions!
