Festive Bunny Fun for Kids!

As kids, we loved Chinese New Year! New clothes, red packets and lots of yummy goodies – what more can you ask for? Well, going by this year’s kids-themed festivities, apparently so much more!

Now all grown up (but still young at heart), we’re nothing if not envious of today’s kids. You’re only young once, so enjoy the festivities to the fullest. Age limit or not, we know we’ll definitely partake!



Rabbits are possibly one of the furriest, fluffiest representations of the Chinese Zodiac, so trust the Zoo to come up with lots of rabbit-themed activities! Embark on the Zoo-diac trail (Feb 3-28) that guarantees loads of family fun while giving you a peek into your 2011 zodiac fortune. 

Other activities include interacting with goodies-toting rabbit mascots (Feb 3-13), meeting a “God of Fortune” or just enjoying a traditional lion dance (Feb 3-13)! Good at estimation? Don’t leave without Guessing the Giant Rabbit’s weight – you just might walk away with the grand prize!

While in the area, hop on down to the neighboring Bird Park for more Roaring Good Times (Feb 3-13) including a spectacular lion dance.



Festivities at the Zoo and Bird Park


For some educational fun, check out the Bunny Wonderland stamp exhibition (until June 30) and  meet famous bunnies through the generations. In the mood for rabbit madness? Don’t miss Bunny Mania (until Feb 28), a special exhibition featuring bunny-themed optical illusions!

If all the festivities have your young ones itching to lay their hands on something, try the Bean Art Workshop (Feb 6-12, suitable for kids between 4-7), where you’re guaranteed a great time designing Chinese New Year pictures using mainly beans! For kids who are cut-and-paste experts, the Fabric Postcard workshop (Feb 5-13) is calling out to you.

For an unusual twist, check out the Wintry Lunar Celebrations (Sat-Sun, Feb 5-6) down by Snow City. Enjoy the usual lion dance and mascot appearance while you walk on snowy grounds and build snowmen!

Wow, what an exciting line-up! Your kids will never have a dull moment this festive season…and neither will you! Don’t forget to check out our other preview guides up, like those for the River Hongbao, Chingay and most importantly, what you can do this weekend for free.
