This March school holidays, consider bringing your little ones to Gardens by the Bay for heaps of ‘monstrous’ fun!
The folks at Gardens by the Bay are running a March Monster Mash festival with monster-themed puppet shows, craft activities, monster installations, workshops, a movie screening, a monster parade, and lots more.
Last weekend, Rachel and I brought Asher for an outdoor screening of the movie, Where the Wild Things Are (2009) at the Supertree Grove. The feeling was pretty awesome, enjoying a picnic under the stars while watching the movie:
