Whether you’re entering motherhood for the first time (or again), Motherhood 2012(31 May-3 Jun) is an event you should definitely attend! Bringing you exciting games, contests and giveaways, you’re sure to have a ball of time finding out more about motherhood.

Bringing your kids along to your shopping trip? Afraid of worn-out kids screaming and telling you that they’re too tired to continue walking? Then be sure to shop at Tampines 1 so that during your shopping break, your kids can play at the Wildlife-Themed Playground. The part promotes messages of wildlife conservation so your kids can have fun and learn a thing or two about the conservation of these wildlife animals depicted in the statues of the playground.

For a more relaxing weekend, get back in touch with nature and head on down to Sentosa’s beach for some picnic, ball games and a splashing good time in the water. If you’re not drained by the fun-filled activities during your picnic, then go on and explore the beautiful Sentosa at the various trails or at the Lake of Dreams– a spectacular fire, water and light show.
