The Lunar New Year is here, and we Singaporeans are all set to celebrate the biggest holiday season. Apart from planning family gatherings and fun activities at homes, most of us will also be looking for some engagement outside homes for our children. Though there might be restrictions due to fear of pandemic spread, the celebrations in Singapore are still going to be fun to engage. Chinese New Year kids activities are organised across Singapore. Here are some best ways to celebrate the Lunar New Year over the holidays, especially with kids and family.
Shenanigans at Sun Yat-Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall
So much happens at the Sun Yat-Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall during the time of Lunar New Year, and you will not be short of activities to engage in there. The Zodiac Animal Coaster and Clay Painting at this place are great engagement activities for kids. You need to reserve tickets online, and the registration is free. The Sun Yat-Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall also hosts a Children’s Lion Dance Workshop, where they can try different costumes and learn basic dance moves.
Street Light-Up in Chinatown
The light-up for the Chinese New Year stretches from Eu Tong Sen Street, New Bridge Road, South Bridge Road, to the Garden Bridge. Choosing to adopt a lantern to decorate your home or office is a pretty good idea. The adoption campaign of the festivals of Chinatown Festivals is in the seventh year, and the sustainable efforts behind it are huge. The chance to apply for adoption starts on 22 February. The opening ceremony will be a virtual celebration this year because of the concern about the pandemic - so join the festivities just by being in the comfort of your homes.
Dahlia Dreams at Gardens by the Bay
Seasonal celebrations happen at Gardens by the Bay during the Chinese New Year season. Taking your child through the garden to explore the floral displays at the Flower Dome is a great idea . You can stroll through a field of 1400 dahlias, alongside some lunar florals.
ARThaus Holiday Camp
Embarking on an art journey is a good deal for children. The five-day ARThaus programme is a good chance for them to learn a lot of traditional and contemporary art techniques. They will also get to learn about using different mediums and materials under the training of well-experienced art instructors.
The S.E.A Aquarium is a place for Chinese New Year kids activities. The humongous Open Ocean Habitat is the major attraction of this place. A sea dragon is installed for the Chinese New Year; things would also get more attractive at the aquarium with an interactive sea dragon mural. The aquarium also has a Trail of Fortune for children to find the hidden ingots and click some pictures, and they can win prizes.
