Our Parenting World’s Giveaway Alert: Playeum ‘Making It Home’ Exhibition Tickets Giveaway! [CLOSED]

Playeum’s Singapore’s first Children’s Centre for Creativity where families and children can play, create and be inspired together is having its latest hands-on exhibition, ‘Making It Home’ that runs from Tuesday 16th May 2017 – Sunday 29th April 2018.

Playeum Making It Home

Playeum has earlier organised 3 successful interactive hands-on exhibitions which were well-received by children and parents and with its latest exhibition, ‘Making It Home’, it focuses on dreaming rooms, making spaces and creating places. ‘Making It Home’ celebrates the home as a source of creativity, artistry and thinking. The exhibition allows children and parents to experience the home as a place where many ordinary materials can have multiple purposes and support imagination, innovation and sustainability. 

The spaces within the Children’s Centre for Creativity have been transformed into different ‘rooms’, each with a different purpose, opportunities to explore, experiment and redefine. Children can dream of their future, bring together colours, materials and designs for floors walls and ceilings, with textiles, paint and construction material. All activities feature Playeum’s unique pedagogies and are supported by Playeum’s trained team of Playmakers.

Within the freedom of the space, children will enjoy and play with ideas that can transform the centre into a unique sensory, aesthetic and making place, that children from all ages and backgrounds can truly make their home.

In a social experiment, Playeum conducted a series of interviews with parents and their children to learn how much time they spend playing together as a family. Watch their reactions in the video below.

Kick off the March school holidays at Gillman Barracks


This coming March school holidays, one of the good places to bring your kids to spend their holidays in a fun and meaningful way is to visit Gillman Barracks.

Interesting background of Gillman Barracks, it was first built in 1936 as a military encampment for the British Army. After a $10-million renovation and due to Singapore’s aggressive plans to become a global arts destination, it has become a art cluster of over ten galleries located in five buildings. Besides the various art galleries, visitors can chill-out and enjoy drinks at The Naked Finn on Malan Road or listen to live music from local bands at Timbre on Lock Road.

Our Parenting World team brings you to explore and participate in the family-friendly kids activities available at Gillman Barracks.

‘Tales of Time’ holiday camp at Playeum

This coming March school holiday, Playeum Children’s Centre for Creativity is having a March holiday camp known as ‘Tales of Time’.

Playeum 2

This is an interesting and educating camp where children will have the opportunity to learn the concept of time which is something not often explored by them.

Children will discover how time is perceived in books, learn and have a better understanding of how the characters in books use time to go about their daily activities and discover how to use time wisely!

This is a fun-filled and educating camp where children will exercise their creativities, take part in drama games and various art activities. 

Camp admission also includes all-day admission to the Children’s Centre for Creativity. Please note that your child must be accompanied by an adult if they choose to arrive earlier/stay on at the Centre before/after the camp.
