No need to keep the kids cooped up at home this school holiday, since the much awaited annual Children’s Festival is back. And this time, it’s themed to the beloved Emotions of Disney and Pixar’s Inside Out 2. Create your own “memory orbs” or make your way through a mirror maze. There's also an installation where kids can pick up a water brush, “paint” to their heart's content and watch doodles appear before their eyes. 

With free interactive installations and immersive experiences inspired by the Emotions, kids may learn about different feelings through play. Make sure to also catch a special edition of the nightly Garden Rhapsody light and sound show that's happening at 7.45pm and 8.45pm. Titled “The Medley of Emotions”, it features an illuminated display across the Supertrees and memory orbs installation, synced to the Inside Out soundtrack.

Be sure to discard your empty Coke cans in the recycling bins, before checking out the Coca-Cola Food Fest zone where the fun ensues. Participate in activities like basketball, a larger-than-life ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’ installation, a free photobooth for memories’ sake, and collect stamps for your Mission Card while at it.

Jewel Blooms is back with six captivating floral displays at Jewel Changi Airport's Canopy Park. The highlight of Jewel Blooms is Petal Garden: Super Blooms by Megumi Shinozaki. This installation features 10,000 bundles of pink hybrid starchis – a double-flowering variety of cherry blossom – and hydrangeas. Arranged on 2.8-metre-tall mountain structures, the result is a dreamy, blush-pink display to make all your Sakura dreams come true. The other five installations are just as gorgeous. Designed by award-winning local designer Andy Eng, they feature vibrant sunflower mazes, tranquil ponds filled with water plants, waterfalls of wisteria, misty trails, and a romantic walk lit by illuminated paper and flowers. 

Topping it off is Changi Experience Studio's 'An Enchanted Night in the Airport' camp. Stay overnight in a garden-like 'campsite' and participate in flora-inspired workshops and quests with your family.
