It’s time to teach your kid that there’s more to animals than the Baby Shark dance. Here are some great activities to check out. 

Singapore is as urban as it gets. But you can still find wildlife activities here for nature to nurture your kid. And is there any better education to give a child than a first-hand experience of the animal kingdom and the wonders that come with it? From discovering the quirky marine creatures that inhabit Singapore’s shores to finding out how worms are the earth’s little eco-warriors, here are some kid-friendly activities for little ones to walk on the wild side.

Did you know: the S.E.A. Aquarium contains 45 million litres of water for over 100,000 animals? One of the world’s largest oceanariums, this magical marine realm is a fabulous place for your kiddo to learn all about the deep blue. They can admire endangered and exotic species from oceans all over the globe, from hammerhead sharks to giant crabs.

Learn all about bees

Bees fly the equivalent of three times around the globe in air miles to produce a kilogram of honey, so it’s safe to say they are very hard workers a decent quality to instil in your child. At the Bee Amazed Garden, they can learn everything about these winged wonders, including how they clean a hive and how they feed a queen bee. Kids will also be shown how to handle bees in a way that will not get them stung.

Creepy crawlies like worms may not be the prettiest critters around. But they are super helpful in aiding sustainable living, considering how they eat their weight’s worth in waste every day. Bring your kid over to Werms.Inc, a farm that teaches you why worms are little eco-warriors. And when you leave, bring home your very own vermicomposting kit.

Singapore surprisingly has a lot of hidden wildlife. All you need to do is know where to look, something The Untamed Paths can help you with. Plan a visit to the beach’s intertidal zone, the part of the coast exposed at low tide, and reward yourself and your little ones with a fruitful time unearthing sea anemone, hermit crabs, sea cucumber, and starfish.

Now, who doesn’t love dolphins? Bottlenose dolphins are one of the few species in the world that can recognise themselves in a mirror, like us. It is this intelligence that makes them such a joy to be around. Bring your children over to Dolphin Island at Resorts World Sentosa and get up close and personal with these loveable, warm-blooded mammals.
