This year, Children’s Festival is all about helping kids learn about the biodiversity in nature in a colourful and supersized way. From 10 June to 25 June, Supertree Grove will be transformed into a nature-themed playground for Children’s Festival: Nature’s Imaginarium. Here, children can hop on the adorable Calvin the Caterpillar train for a guided educational tour, where they will encounter Calvin’s flora and fauna friends. Children can even play among these large-scale sculptures of flora and fauna, and in the process, learn their important roles in the ecosystem.

In addition, with different themes for each weekend, families can look forward to a series of activities from craft workshops, outdoor programme and movie screenings, a best dressed competition and even a dog adoption drive!
