After going through weeks of stressful preparation for exams, parents will surely be looking at plans to help the entire family de-stress. Here are some ideas we’ve put together to reward our children during the mid-year holidays so that they have something to look forward to after their exams.
As much as adults love travelling overseas for holiday, the children will be thrilled to know that their parents are bringing them on holiday trips. Parents can decide which places to go depending on the distance and number of days planned for the trip. Neighbouring countries like Malaysia have attractions like Legoland, Puteri Harbour, Angry Birds Activity Park and Kidzania.
Of course, for a more luxurious holiday treat, there will be countries further afield to consider such as Australia, Europe, United States and many more – which have no lack of attractions and activities to excite your young ones.

You can also book a package with Club Med for an all inclusive holiday. The children will be thrilled this holiday with sports and leisure activities at the Kids Club and all round dining. What’s more, kids stay for free in Club Med Phuket, Cherating Beach, Bali and Bintan.
For some parents who prefer to spend the weekends with the children during the school holidays and not deal with the hassle of travelling out of Singapore, you can consider staycations. Sentosa, our very own island of fun will certainly be a popular choice for its myriads of hotels that offer family packages with value-added services for children.
