Tayo Station Pop-Up at City Square Mall – Even has a drop-off service!

Fans of Tayo The Little Bus or indoor playgrounds, you will be happy to note that Tayo Station has recently opened a 2,000 sqft pop-up outlet at City Square Mall level B2. The pop-up will be around until 31 December 2020.

The Tayo Station pop-up, is smaller than its original Tayo Station outlet at Downtown East, however the pricing has been made more affordable. Each 2 hour slot costs $15 on weekdays and $18 on weekends. Not too bad a pricing if your kiddos just want a couple of hours of play. In any case, due to Covid-19 most indoor playground are only offering a 2 or 3 hour block of play time anyway. Safe-distancing measures stipulate that the maximum capacity in the play area is 14 pax.

Allez Les Petits – $20 baking class for kids!

After a long hiatus, here’s a post featuring Edward. As a stay at home mum, I’ve always had the idea that a good part of my time would be spent giving Edward interesting experiences outside of school time. Unfortunately COVID-19 hit and there wasn’t much opportunity to do for many months, and now I’m trying to make up for it.

For example, he is obsessed with trains and one of the things he likes to do is to take train rides around Singapore! Once, he forced us to make the trip to Tuas Link. That journey nearly killed us (the parents) as it was more than 1 hour each way, coupled with a pit stop for lunch. The journey to Tuas Link was not too bad, as we enjoyed looking at the not so familiar scenery. However the return journey was mind-numbingly boring.

Other kids activities that I would loved to have brought him to include more museums, indoor kids playgrounds, swimming, art and music classes etc. I must admit, COVID-19 has made me enjoy staying in the house too much such that I feel lazy to go out even though I feel it is relatively safer now. I must say we made good progress this last one month. These were the things we managed to cover:

  • Pasir Panjang Nursery Tour
  • Science Centre Kids Science Workshop
  • Changi Experience Studio
  • Allez Les Petits
  • Tayo Station Pop Up
  • Adhoc Badminton training sessions

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa – Amazing exclusive pool + special breakfast for the kiddos!

[Media Invite]

If you’re looking for a spacious family room + swimming pool for your next hotel staycation, you just might want to consider Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa. Recently, the husband, toddler and I had the luxury of checking out Amara Sanctuary, via the Club Tiny Package.

Amara Sanctuary Resort Sentosa - Larkhill Terrace Swimming Pool

There’s just so many things I loved about the staycation. First of all, the spacious rooms. These family rooms are located in a separate block (Larkhill Terrace) away from the main hotel block. The rooms are huge! There is a separate living room area, the bedroom with a king-sized bed and even a balcony with a day bed to lounge on. It literally felt like the size of a small apartment.
