KidsSTOP @ Singapore Science Centre

The latest attraction for kids from 18 months - 8 years is KidsStop at the Science Centre. They have an impressive gamut of activities which promotes experiential learning with a lot of fun!

I waited for the initial excitement to die down before taking the kids so that it wouldn't be so packed. We went after school on a Friday and it was perfect as the place was not crowded at all. Kate and #5 had a whale of a time there as there is just so much to explore.
Kate patiently waiting her turn to fly the plane
Uh-oh. The two pilots ran off, along with the outfits. Oh well, we can make-believe just as well without the uniforms.
"You are my co-pilot. Must listen to my instructions ok?" "OK, gor gor!"

#5 finds our anatomy very amusing

Blasting off into space together. So long!

Climbing structure… into space?

Everyone wants to touch the chick
We learnt how to tell the gender of the chicks. The females have a brown marking while the males are yellowish white in colour.
"Worm!" (She doesn't know about millipedes yet)
#5 gave me a run down on hermit crabs - on how they 'borrow' shells, and about mud skippers. I didn't know he knew so much about science!

First you build the Lego

Then you use it for Stop Motion Animation

Be prepared for them being sandy!

After more than 2 hours of playing, Kate was ready to call it a day.
"Playing is such back-breaking work!"

Sane tip: Don't forget to bring socks as some of the areas require socks to enter. They do very thorough health checks on the kids at the entrance so getting in takes a little while. You can purchase tickets either from the main Science Centre entrance or at KidsSTOP itself.

Save tip: I absolutely love this hands-on science museum! Definitely getting the membership the next time round. It's $30 for a year and you need to bring along a passport photo and a copy of the child's birthcert. Benefits of membership: 1 free admission for the child and accompanying adult. Subsequently, 30% discount off entry fees. Full benefits here.
