June Holidays 2021: 15 Online Activities To Entertain Kids Indoors

Need ideas for home-based activities during the upcoming June holidays?

Budget-conscious parents in Singapore have always looked to the local community centres (CCs) for their selection of free-to-affordable activities, conducted by lively and experienced trainers. With the current Covid-19 “Heightened Alert” measures, all of their kid-friendly activities have moved online — this gives you a wider spread of options, unrestricted by location. 

Do take note that similar courses conducted by the same trainer across CCs should be priced the same. However, there may be slight variations in the listed price, so please check with the CC if in doubt.

Below, you’ll find some CC holiday courses that are suitable for children between four and 12, with sign-up links for your convenience. If you prefer to browse courses on your own, simply visit the People’s Association website and use the search term “SHS,” which is short for “School Holidays Series.”

Fun CC Courses, With Multiple Dates To Choose From
