5 simple tips to enjoying i Light Marina Bay 2014 with kids.
1. Plan your routes way in advance.
Check out the Map. It would be absolutely too adventurous (reads: Suicidal) to cover the whole i Light Marina Bay 2014 exhibition with KIDS in a day. My suggestion is to take either route A or route B and STICK to the route. You could mouse over the yellow dots on the website, have a brief idea of each exhibits, then decide on which route to take. Do also check out the FREE GUIDED TOURS which is available every Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Advance booking is required, please check website for more details.
2. Bring kick scooter, skateboards or anything with wheels!
With tiny little feet, it is hard for kids to keep up. So anything that comes with wheels that makes them go FASTER than their parents excites them. Parents with young child, toddlers and baby, bring the stroller or a baby carrier.
3. Allow them to INTERACT with the art installation.
More than half of the exhibits at i Light Marina Bay 2014 are interactive. Allow your child the FREEDOM to TOUCH.
4. Hand them the camera.
It’s strange, but it is true. The child feels empowered to be handed the camera. Kids feel that their perspective is important when given such responsibility. It sustains their interest and keeps them going.
5. Take the Boat Ride.
Every kid loves a boat ride! Get a unique perspective of the key light art installations while you sail through Marina Bay. Tickets are sold from Marina Bay City Gallery Pier at $12/pax. Boat ride is only available every Friday, Saturday & Sunday. Please check website for more details.
