If you were to let your child pick any of the activities on this list to do during Children’s Day weekend, there’s a 75% chance that your little one will choose Wild Wild Wet. We’re serious — try it now and see if we’re right! Located in Downtown East, Wild Wild Wet is one of Asia’s largest water parks, with plenty of rides and attractions for kids of all ages.
You and your kids can spend hours floating around Shiok River or riding the waves at the Tsunami Swimming Pool. If your kids are a tad older, you can let them enjoy some of the park’s thrilling water slides like the Kraken Racers and Singapore’s first 360° extreme loop slide, the Vortex High Speed Slide. Don’t worry, if gliding down high-speed slides with your kids isn’t your thing. You can always catch some rays on a lounge chair or simply unwind in the park’s spacious jacuzzi pool.

A day at the beach is always a good way to spend family time with the kiddos. In fact, there are loads of activities in Sentosa that you and your family can do — whether it’s having a relaxing picnic by the beach, taking part in some water-based fun or staying on dry land and seeing the nearby attractions.
If your kids love the water, you can take them to play at the Hydrodash floating aqua park, go on some water slides at Adventure Cove Waterpark or frolic with dolphins at Dolphin Island. You can also go for a dip in the cool waters by Palawan, Siloso or Tanjong Beach if a picnic sounds up your alley.
Kids who enjoy land-based adventures are guaranteed to enjoy the VR games at Headrock VR and races at Skyline Luge Singapore. You can also drop by at the S.E.A Aquarium to get up close and personal with some friends of the sea.
