The June school holidays are looming and I know a whole month of the kids with nothing to do can be a frightening thought. Luckily in Singapore there are plenty of places to go and fun activities for kids to keep them happy.
Whether you are looking for whole day camps or shorter activities there are plenty to choose from. Here are a few that have caught my attention, and I'm sure there are more that I have missed, so if anyone has suggestions, feel free to comment.
Skate With Us.

Lots to do here for the kids, including the Pixar Exhibition which includes a 3D movie.
