Children’s Day and October activities

Children’s day is a few hours away, and most kids will be on leave tomorrow 🙂
We have listed a few activities in the month of October for your reference.

1) 13Oct from 1000 to 1730, “Voyage of Dreams” awaits your family at Central Library. The highlight will be storytelling and diy cardboard Fun. Organised by Mummy Sarah ( and NLB, more details listed here.

To quote from Sarah :
[ Voyage of Dreams: Only Believe is a community celebration of hopes and dreams that children and families have. It is also about celebrating the importance of family and creating special family memories through play, and with DIY playthings created out of cardboard. Families that play together stay together! ]

Along the project, Daddy found a website about cardboard fun, maybe someone wish to build a iPhone 5s suit? More cardboard ideas here.

2) Every city needs a hero. Singapore has been hit by hackers, and telecomm, transport, financial and utility services are critically affected! Save the city at Suntec West Atrium. Be CyberShock-ed!
