Time Out says

If you’re a parent and if you’re struggling to think of ways to keep your kids occupied during the upcoming school holidays in June, fret not. With over 90 family-friendly programmes planned, this year’s Children’s Season, which runs from May 27 to June 25, will help to keep your kids entertained. 

At Children’s Season 2023, the theme is Hopes and Dreams – your child will be able to explore different occupations and inventions in past and present Singapore, which will hopefully inspire them to discover their own aspirations for the future. The event, which is organised by the National Heritage Board (NHB), will take place at 25 museums across Singapore, including the National Museum of Singapore, the Children’s Museum Singapore, and The Peranakan Museum.  

The highlight of this year’s Children’s Season is a series of 30 comic art workshops, which should excite comic-loving children. Your children will be in good hands – the workshops will be hosted by 14 talented artists and art educators, who will teach them different comic skills such as story-telling techniques, character design, and drawing expressions. Your kids will also get to design their own comic artworks during the workshops. The comic workshops will be held across 10 museums, such as the Children’s Museum, and each workshop will feature themes inspired by the museum that the workshops are held at. For example, kids will be able to transform their doodles into car designs at the Singapore Mobility Gallery.

In addition to the comic workshops, each museum will offer their own curated programmes, which will explore different career paths. At the NUS Museum, for instance, children can look forward to trying out several archaeology-related activities. If your kids are more interested in playing with toys, the MINT Museum of Toys will be holding a workshop that invites participants to design their own augmented reality (AR) toy. Kids will also be able to tap into their creative side at the Children’s Museum, where they can join paper craft workshops and learn how to make their own 3D paper sculptures.

There will be a passport stamp collection activity across all the museums; kids will be given a special passport to collect stamps at each museum when they visit, and will stand a chance to win prizes if they complete any of the three tiered milestones in their passport. 

Children’s Season 2023 will consist of a mixture of free and paid activities, some of which will require tickets. More information and updates will be available by May 22 on the NHB website.
