Storytelling Comes Alive!
Free and open to public on Palawan Beach, Storytelling Comes Alive is an interactive activity where children will be encouraged to take part in the storytelling process and create their own ending. This activity is specific for the June hols and ends on 28 June. It features PLAYMOBIL inspired figurines as part of the storytelling process, and this year, in view of the SEA Games fever that has gripped the nation, one story is of course, sports themed.

Port of Lost Wonder
Also on Palawan Beach, the popular kids club is a hit with families who want to find a place to cool down. It also helps that the in-house restaurant, Port Belly, serves quite nice food. This June, POLW also features sports such as javelin, archery, beach soccer and netball for the children to try out.

Wings of Time
A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner, Wings of Time is one of the most popular ways for families to end their day in Sentosa. The first show begins at 7.40pm, so it’s not too late for families to have dinner before or after!
