Planning for some March holiday activities for your child? How about some indoor fun at some of the best kids’ indoor playgrounds in Singapore?
It is close to the time of the year again when kids are looking forward to the first school holiday of the year.
But for parents, it might mean inching closer to a big headache about where and how to spend the holidays with your child.
We haven’t even mentioned the astronomical costs involved in bringing your kids out during the holidays.
Some simply throw the problem away by signing up for more enrichment courses during the holiday. This would probably set you back by at least a few hundred dollars if you go all out on the high-value, educational classes.
However, nothing is as valuable as spending quality time with their child, bringing them for a fun day out at indoor playgrounds.
More importantly, these indoor playgrounds are relatively affordable, costing just shy of $100 even if you spend nearly a whole day out.
Here are some fun kids indoor playgrounds that you can bring your child to for a much deserved break during the March school holidays.
