Valentines Weekend Fun

Valentines Day was a day set aside by society to celebrate romantic love. This day has a different meaning for me as I believe it doesn’t have to be love between a man and women, but one that encompasses the whole family.  The meaning of Valentines has been commercialized and as a result  romantic love has been emphasized on instead of the love for the family which should be the true focus.

This year I decided on doing something different and celebrate with the kids instead.  What better way  to spend the weekend then letting the kids try create memories from new experiences.

I brought them to Lilliputt  to try out the 18-hole indoor putting range at East Coast Park.  It was the first time that  tried putting and they really enjoyed themselves.

They were each given a colored ball and shown how to hold the putters properly.

It was really interesting to see each hole decorated to look like various places of interest in Singapore. At most stations the kids have to guide the ball up a ramp so that it could go through the different pathways to reach the  hole.

It was extremely interesting as one no idea where the ball would go after if had enter the structure via the ramp. The ball could exit from  which hole in the structure.

Doggie boy found this particular station extremely amusing.  He deliberately lingered at this station so that he could see the train transporting the ball from point A to point B several times.

The kids took about 1.5hr to complete the 18 holes.

Have your kids tried an indoor putting range before?

  1. Yes Lil Pumpkin has been to one before with her daddy.. don’t think it left much of an impression though as I’ve never heard her talk about it haha.. but I’m sure she would have loved the extra time alone with him 🙂

  2. I’ve never tried golf, or mini golf. It actually looks like a lot of fun. A good physical activity for the family that’s not so strenuous but gets all moving.
