Don't you agree that it's important for everyone to always have fun in life no matter how young or old we are? Fun is such an underrated aspect here in Singapore where most adults are just slogging tirelessly away at work so that they can pay for and torment their kids with endless tuition classes. You know things are getting strange when you friends start adorning their Instagram posts with the bizarre #adulting hashtag, whatever that may mean.

Well, we at are all for the idea of working hard and playing hard, so if you're on the same page as us, these 4 weekend family-fun ideas might just be the things you need to get some life back for yourself and your family.

4 Family-Fun Ideas For The Weekend

1. Explore Places You Haven't Been To

Stop going to the same shopping malls over and over already. Singapore may be tiny but I'm certain most of us haven't been to every single place Singapore has to offer.

From secret attractions at Changi Airport, interesting green spaces in Singapore's concrete jungle to secret spots your kids will love and the most unique landmarks, you sure have options if you're planning to take your family out for some weekend fun!

In case you and/or your family are interested, here are the best places where you can marvel at orchids and the most interesting vertical farms you can visit in your free time.

2. Make A Beeline For Budget-Friendly Options

Although kids are generally better off when you're rich, there are plenty of fun and free things you can do here in Singapore if you know where to look. Here are some super fun kids' activities that will cost you less than $20. Most of these are free, by the way!

There are ways to have fun in Singapore without spending a lot of money, really. Go for free art and cultural appreciation at museums or catch free concerts year-round.

If you want to be touristy, there's absolutely no shame in heading over to the free places you can visit in north Singapore, free places you can visit in south Singapore, free places you can visit in east Singapore, free places you can visit in west Singapore, and free places you can visit in central Singapore.

3. Run To The Water Parks

Who doesn't like to have a splashing good time with their little ones, right? Not only do you and your family get to have a whale of a time at water parks, trips to these places are also great if you're looking to combat the scorching weather here in sunny Singapore.

Not sure which water park to head to? Take your pick from the 4 best water parks in Singapore we've sussed out for you.
