School Holiday Ideas: Play At Sentosa!

Media Invite

School holidays is probably the happiest time of the year for the students, but it can be quite a headache for parents as well, because we have to find activities to occupy them throughout the one-month break. Sentosa is always the first place that comes to my mind, because there are many fun things we can do there. Over the weekend, my kids were invited to Sentosa to try out their new activities specially prepared for the June school holidays. We had a really fun and fruitful Saturday!

First up, Storytelling comes alive! is done as a tie-up with Playmobil this time round. Fans of Playmobil will be thrilled to see so many life-sized Playmobil characters everywhere. I've caught several seasons of Storytelling comes alive! before, but I thought this season is the best I've seen so far. It was interactive with audience participation, and the various characters were interesting and engaging as well. The storytelling takes place at the Images of Singapore Forecourt every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday of June, 11.30am, 3pm & 5pm.

Inline with the Playmobil theme, there are several Playmobil treats happening in the same area as well. The Playmobil Western House, for example, was specially imported from Germany. It's a life-size playhouse!

You can also check this very limited-edition Egyptian Diorama set, which was released in 2009 and has since been discontinued. This highly sought after complete set is worth over $2,000 and will be up for bidding. All proceeds shall be donated to charity. I was pretty amazed by the intricate details of the piece.

Kids who love art & craft can also have a go at making aprons, storybooks or button badges with materials provided. $10/kid, Islanders get 50% off.

What made my kids really excited though, was the pizza-making session at the Playmobil cafe. For just $10/kid, the kids can make their own pizzas and even get a limited edition playmobil figurine! Fun and stomach-filling at the same time. :)

The kids had to wash their hands, get dressed with aprons & chef's hats. Hee.. really quite fun!

Look how thrilled they were with their set of pizza ingredients. :)

Happy with their creations! :)

And happier still when they got to eat their own work of labour!

Be sure to check the series of activities happening on Sentosa this June holiday! My kids had such a blast! After all the fun, we even lazed around and spent some time on the lovely beach, building sandcastles. Holidays ought to be so! =D
