4 Family-Approved Activities for the School Holidays

Spending family time together doesn’t have to be a chore. To save you from wrecking your brains, we’ve put together a list of family activities suitable for all ages. Skip the usual (read: boring) and explore these alternatives for a family get-together this September school holidays instead.

OUE Social Kitchen


With eating practically a national past-time, it makes sense to try cooking the next time you’re planning a family activity. At OUE Social Kitchen, either sign up for one of their themed lunch parties or dinner nights or bring your own ingredients to whip up a mouth-watering meal with the whole family. Cooking stations are available for rent by the hour and comes with full access to condiments, crockery, utensils and state-of-the-art equipment by SMEG. Our favourite part? The staff cleans up after you, so all you need to focus on is the cooking and eating.

OUE Social Kitchen is located at #03-02/03


The Reading Room


Nestled on the first level of Downtown Gallery, The Reading Room is a sanctuary of sorts. If you’re hanging by the CBD and seeking a brief respite with the fam crew, drop by to lounge on the comfy sofas or get absorbed in a book – the shelves are filled with decommissioned books from NLB spanning a wide range of topics to suit all your literary tastes.

Upside Motion


Upside Motion is a popular after-work gym given its location, but its family-friendly environment and kids-friendly classes make it a great choice for an all-family workout. Put #fitspo at the top of your family’s weekend agenda as you give Pilates, Barre, Aerial or Yoga a shot. Hone your fitness skills by improving on balance, flexibility, and endurance and enjoy that rush of endorphins with these effective workouts.

The Green Capsule


If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to bond with your family at home, throw away the rule book with The Green Capsule’s newly engineered innovative aquarium. The biOrbAIR is a fully automated terrarium designed to create the perfect micro-climate for growing tropical plants. You’ll appreciate not only the process of designing the terrarium, but hours after for a stress-free quality family time -watching the world you’ve planted grow.
