CDC vouchers are a welcome reprieve for growing families grappling with inflation rates. If you have at least one Singaporean citizen at home, your household would have received the latest tranche of vouchers that can go towards defraying essential purchases.

However, did you know that these vouchers need not be used at just the nearby kopitiam or grocery stores? They can also go towards learning a new skill with your child or be redeemed at eateries where you can enjoy some family bonding time.


Here are some great options to consider. To search for participating merchants near your home, simply head to this link.

1.Treat the kids to dessert

Watch those little faces light up when you treat them to an ice-cream surprise at cafes like Udders (Kovan and Upper Thomson Road) and Yocha Ice Cream (Upper Serangoon and Tampines). A fortnightly or monthly ritual as such can help you and the fam create a lifetime of fond memories!

2. Learn how to play a musical instrument

Located at Bras Basah Complex, Xin Yue Music Studio offers courses for the guitar, ukulele, violin, voice and more. If you are looking for a common hobby between you and your child, consider enrolling the both of you for a class and discover your love of making music at the same time!

3. Get active on wheels

Those with grown children who are adept cyclists may enjoy riding as a family activity on the weekends. Places like Bike Haus at Bukit Timah offer bicycle rental options (daily, weekly or monthly). If you prefer to purchase your own, shops like Bike Station at Ang Mo Kio will fit the bill.

4. Learn to bake and cook

Artz Baking & Culinary studio at Crawford Lane offers a huge variety of classes that will whet appetites. From fruit jams and cookies to donuts and cutesy marshmallows, you and your family will learn new skills while keeping your tummies warm and happy. Discounted fees for parent-child or sibling pairs apply for selected classes. Private workshops are also available on enquiry.
