The March school holidays in 2023 are almost upon us and it’s time to start planning some fun activities to keep the children entertained.
From outdoor adventures to indoor experiences, there are plenty of exciting things to do in Singapore during this break. Here are five March school holiday ideas to get you started.
1. Explore nature at MacRitchie Reservoir
For families who love the great outdoors, MacRitchie Reservoir offers plenty of opportunities for hiking and wildlife spotting. The TreeTop Walk suspension bridge is a particular highlight, offering panoramic views of the forest canopy.
MacRitchie Reservoir is a short 10-minute drive away from MindSpace After School Student Care Centre @ Toa Payoh Central, MindSpace After School Student Care Centre @ The Woodleigh Mall, and MindSpace After School Student Care Centre @ Square 2 (Novena), easily accessible after your child’s classes or weekend enrichment at our centre.
Address: MacRitchie Reservoir Park, Singapore 298717
2. Go bouldering at Boulder Planet Sembawang
If you prefer an indoor activity instead, why not turn up the excitement this March school holiday season and introduce your child to the world of bouldering at Boulder Planet, located in the same shopping mall as MindSpace After School Student Care Centre @ Sembawang Shopping Centre (Canberra).
Not only is bouldering a great way to get a full body workout after your child’s classes have ended, but aspiring little adventurers and their parents alike can also benefit from the difficult manoeuvres that challenges one to make use of their problem solving skills.
You can even compete to see who completes each route fastest, fostering healthy competition while providing plenty of laughs along the way.
Address: Boulder Planet Sembawang, 604 Sembawang Rd, #B1-22/23 Sembawang Shopping Centre, Singapore 758459
3. Explore cultural sites in Chinatown
For families who prefer to take it slow, Singapore’s vibrant Chinatown offers a myriad of cultural delights to explore during the upcoming school holidays.
Wander through its streets and take a step back in time as you admire the traditional Chinese-style carvings, sculptures, and shophouses; savour tantalising treats like oyster omelette and dim sum in restaurants, and visit heritage sites like the Thian Hock Keng Temple or Buddha Tooth Relic Temple.
Chinatown is a vibrant cultural hub in the heart of Singapore, located a 15-minute car ride away from
MindSpace After School Student Care Centre at Raffles Town Club. Get more recommendations on the things to do in Chinatown dropping by the Chinatown Visitor Centre.
Address: Chinatown Visitor Centre, 2 Banda Street, Singapore 059962 (Behind Buddha Tooth Relic Temple)
4. Learn about Singapore’s history at Fort Canning Park
Fort Canning Park, a short 5-minute walk away from MindSpace After School Student Care Centre @ Clarke Quay (The Central), is a beautiful green space in the heart of the city. Offering an abundance of heritage sites to explore, this park is one of the oldest historical sites in Singapore where you and your child can experience its rich history first-hand.
Whether it’s strolling along the Spice Garden or admiring the ancient archaeological artefacts at Battle Box, a trip to the park will undoubtedly offer families a fascinating insight into Singapore’s role in World War II, providing an enriching learning experience for your child.
Address: Fort Canning Park, River Valley Rd, Singapore 179037
5. Bowl your way to fun at Sonic Bowl in Tampines
Similar to bouldering, bowling is another physical activity that the whole family can enjoy during the March school holidays in Singapore. Try to get those strikes and spares, feel the wind behind that first throw of the day, and show off your skills at making those tricky splits at Sonic Bowl.
The bowling alley is directly opposite MindSpace After School Student Care Centre @ Tampines Junction, a convenient place for your child to take a breather after his school or enrichment classes have ended and avoid burnout!
