83.  Make a splash at Wild Wild Wet.

 

As far as theme parks go, this one is by far the wettest and the wildest! Slip and slide your way down giant flume rides and slides or splash about in the wave pool. For the toddlers, there’s the Yippee! play area with soft play equipment that’ll keep your little ones well-occupied.

84.  Have a birthday party at The Pit.

What better birthday gift than to give your brood the chance to get dirty – real dirty? Set up like an army-style assault course, The Pit is suitable for all ages to have a rollicking good time in the mud. Your child’s next birthday party will certainly not be the pits!

85.  Learn to skate.

Skating is a great way to relax and have fun together while also getting some exercise. Learning to skate is easy especially under the guidance of a pro. Save yourselves from more bumps and bruises than necessary with Skateline where you can learn at your own pace!

 

 

 

 86.  Get gardening tips from HortPark and plant your own mini vegetable or spice garden.


This is a useful family project that everyone can get involved in. Kids get to nurture a plant from its seedling beginnings and truly enjoy the fruit of their labour, literally! Creating your own little family garden doesn’t necessarily require a big piece of land. You can start small with little pots of herbs which will be just as rewarding and come in real handy in the kitchen!
