Places to go this Weekend - Splash @ Kidz Amaze

If you have not done so, I highly recommend heading down to Splash Kidz Amaze @ SAFRA Punggol. I have been procrastinating about going but finally went, and it was such a FUN experience!  When you see the playground from the payment counter, it seemed underwhelming but once you enter, you will understand that you it was only a tiny portion of the entire play area!  If your LO is younger or afraid of water, you can stay around the wading area. With many water sprays, fountains and even a baby slide, I saw several families enjoying the entire time @ the wading area.  If your LO is a Water Playground Expert, head over to the main playground. With 5 slides...
