Parents and children of Singapore, rejoice! Children’s Day this year falls on Friday, Oct 7, which means you’ve essentially got a long weekend break from school. Cue fun times, days out and all the best treats for the kiddos.

To celebrate the special day, here are five meals, activities and dining promotions at kid-friendly eateries to check out this weekend.

1. Ikea Singapore

Three locations across the island at Alexandra, Tampines and Jurong
Open: Check the various outlets for timings

Take your little ones to any Ikea Singapore outlet and make a day of it.

On Oct 7, Ikea Singapore’s Kids Eat for Free promotion returns, which means Ikea Family members will enjoy a free kids’ meal with every adult main course purchased.

Non-members can sign up to join Ikea’s Family membership programme for free.

The young ones can choose from kids’ pasta — spaghetti with tomato-based pasta sauce — as well as Ikea’s signature meatballs and plant-based balls (U.P. S$3).

Kids will also enjoy the little shark bun (S$2.90), an adorably shaped red bean bun that’s perfectly sized for small hands. Keep a lookout for an all-new little turtle bun (S$2.90), which will be available from Oct 10 onwards.

Let the kids enjoy their sugar high and bake up a storm at Pastamania’s Doughworkz cookie-making workshop on Oct 7, 8 and 15. 

Held in collaboration with homegrown bakery Little House of Dreams, kids will get the chance to make their own cookies from scratch and decorate them however they like. 

Do note there is a registration fee of S$60, which includes all the necessary materials.

This activity is recommended for children aged eight and above.

3. The Laughing Cow x Jollibean

This one is for the young and young at heart. Dairy brand The Laughing Cow has teamed up with Jollibean for a new seasonal menu that’s sure to hit the spot.

If you’re looking to share, we’d suggest Set A (S$8, U.P. S$9.20), which comprises two classic soy milk drinks and two double cheese marus — a circular pancake that’s stuffed with two layers of cream cheese from The Laughing Cow.

Set B (S$8, U.P. S$8.70) comes with one classic soy milk drink, a double cheese maru, and a cream cheese soy waffle — much better for solo diners looking for a teatime snack.

To redeem a limited-edition The Laughing Cow sling bag (U.P. S$22.90) with every set purchased, head to selected Jollibean outlets — IMM, Nex, AMK Hub, Changi Airport Terminal 3, and Raffles Place.

4. Swensen’s

Open: Daily (11.30am to 10.30pm)

If you haven’t gotten your fill of cheese, check out the latest addition to Swensen’s children’s menu — an all-new salmon quesadilla (S$10.90++), which comes with an iced Milo drink.

Stuffed with salmon chunks and oozy cheese, the quesadilla also comes with a fruity yoghurt and mesclun salad, so that your little ones will be sure to get a healthy, hearty meal.
