PHOTO: WILDLIFE RESERVES SINGAPORE
Go around the world with your little ones during the June holidays – all without leaving Singapore! At Jurong Bird Park, enjoy buy-one-get-one free admission tickets (from 24 May-30 Jun), and entertain your kids with six engaging and educational programmes during the weekend.
First up: Dora the Explorer and Diego from Go, Diego, Go! take you on a tour of the park, with photo opportunities at the Pools Amphitheatre at 12.30pm every weekend in June.
Another celeb sighting – Dr Squawk from Bird Park Flies to Schools offers a cool expedition in the park, where she travels to various continents in her quest for flightless birds. Children between five and 12 years old can try this out at 2.30pm and 4.30pm at the Breeding and Research Centre. If you're a big fan of the birds, look out for the chance to get up close and personal with the exotic ones at 1.45pm at Penguin Coast.
For older children keen on wildlife conservation, try your hand at being a junior avian keeper (7 Jun) with hands-on activities like preparing feed and enrichment for the birds. After that, pack your bags and explore the five continents from Australia to South America, Antarctica, Asia and Africa, with an explorer kit and a 'passport' to collect stamps from all over the world.
If you're yearning for more, kids between the age of six to 12 can attend the three-day Bird Quest Camp (12-14 Jun) to experience the birds up close, discover the secrets of nest making and learn all about your feathered friends.
