Non-stop Fun at KidsStop!

Near the end of the June school holidays, I took the two older ones to KidsSTOP at Science Centre and they had so much fun that I had to drag them kicking and screaming from the place after our 3-hour session there. We didn’t even managed to explore the entire area because the kids had no socks and weren’t able to play in some parts.

There’s so much to do there that I’m not even going to attempt to write about the different activity areas and will just have a whole bunch of pictures to show what we did that day.

I really like the fact that they limit entry to 300 people at any time so it doesn’t feel overcrowded and you don’t have to wait ages for any particular activity. They also have a lot of facilitators around the place to give instructions and to put stuff back so that other children can play and they ensure that the place isn’t in a crazy mess.

I’m looking forward to going back with the kids again! Check out their FAQs for more information before you head down.

Human Body Experience at Science Centre

Sometime during the school holidays, I wanted to take Anya to Kids Stop at Science Centre but the 12pm session was sold out for that day so we ended up at the Human Body Experience. I thought she would enjoy it since she really likes fiddling around with the Human Body app we have on the iPad and loves watching episodes of Once Upon A Time… Life. I was wrong.

She didn’t like the darkness inside and the glowing lights. She didn’t like crawling in through the mouth and didn’t like the lungs pressing down on her. And she especially didn’t like squeezing through the various sections of the intestines and emerging from the butt. She actually burst into tears when we were near the end! I thought the Human Body Experience was interesting enough, and I know of kids both older and younger than Anya who enjoyed it tremendously so I guess it just wasn’t her thing.
