Singapore, as well as being kid-friendly all year round, has some great activities to do with the kids this holiday weekend. From egg hunts to games and photo ops with the Easter bunny, you’ll be sure to be kept busy. So, let’s take a look at the best Easter activities for the kids in Singapore!
The name may ring a bell, as we previously featured the owner of Bollywood Veggies in our list of Asian women making a difference on the political and social scene. Sustainable, surrounded by nature and a stone’s throw from the city, Bollywood Veggies is holding an epic Easter egg hunt. There are prizes galore and it gives the kids chance to romp around the countryside and get some fresh air. Best of all, the event is free and you do not need to have tickets in advance. The hunt runs all weekend from 8.00 a.m- 6.30 p.m and afterwards, you have the opportunity to eat on-site or visit the local farmers market which is also on at the same time as the Easter events.
The epic Easter egg hunt run by CHIJMES on Victoria Street in downtown Singapore is one of the best egg hunts in the city and is perfect for little and big kids alike. Sessions run on April 1st and begin at 2.30 p.m until 6.00 p.m, with four timed sessions. The fun of this hunt is that you have to complete mini tasks before progressing, so it is not only just finding as many eggs as you can. Tickets cost S$10 and each kid receives a goodie bag at the end. It is necessary to book in advance here as tickets sell out quickly, and you need to arrive 30 minutes before the session to register.
One of the most famous attractions in Singapore has teamed up with one of the most infamous children’s characters of all time, Peter Rabbit. The bunny in question has his own vegetable patch, where most of the fun will be held. There is also an opportunity to meet Peter Rabbit himself from 24th-1st April in the mornings. Apart from enjoying the theme park, there are some special Easter activities, such as an Easter egg hunt from 24th March-1st April and interactive displays about eggs and their function in the animal kingdom. The Park is also running craft activities where children can make their own Easter bunnies. The cost of the activities is included in the ticket price, but it is a wise idea to contact the park first to check availability.
The hotel, located in Changi airport, is holding a rather extravagant Easter Sunday brunch, which can be enjoyed by the whole family. There are Easter egg painting crafts, an egg hunt and an opportunity to meet the Easter bunny for younger children. For adults, teenagers and older children, there is a well-stocked buffet with all kinds of sweet and savory Easter-themed treats. There is also an Easter Sunday dinner, where children under six can dine for free. It is best to call ahead and book in advance, and expect to pay around S$71 per adult and S$35 per child.
For Easter mass, St Joseph’s Church in Victoria Street offer services throughout the Easter weekend. The Church of St Peter and St Paul also offer mass in English and Mandarin. St Andrew’s cathedral have planned an entire week of services from 25th March to 1st April, with services in English. Being the largest church in Singapore, you can guarantee that the atmosphere will be incredible as worshippers from all over the city come to commemorate Easter.
