Ditch The Phone – Incorporate New Experiences With Your Kids This School Holidays

School Holidays Activity Ideas

When school holidays approaches, parents start to look for things to fill their days when the kids are home. It’s also usually the school holidays where parents create new experiences for the kids and perhaps for themselves at the same time.

Duchess of Cambridge (now Princess of Wales) revealed in her Happy Mum, Happy Baby Interview Podcast in 2020 that she tries to incorporate a lot of experiences that her granny gave her; into the experiences she give to her children now. Doing simple things like taking a walk, cooking, doing arts and crafts and essentially spending time together. Here are a few ideas that families can do with their kids this school holidays.

1. Reconnect With Nature This School Holidays

Take a break from the city life and reconnect with nature. Get outdoors and spice up your healthy living habits by exploring the nature reserves and parks via the Park Connector Network of Singapore (PCN)!

Whether it’s cycling, walking, running or hiking, take some time away from the screens and dive into an adventure like no other? It’s a great way to get the whole family involved with physical activity and bonding.

Get out and make some lasting memories while staying active in spectacular sights around our garden city.

2. Cooking Or Baking Together

Bonding experiences in the kitchen are invaluable for both parents and children. In pre-schools, the kids get to do pretend play at the kitchen corner. When you cook or bake together with the kids, the little ones get to watch the process of making real food from scratch, and they even get to help out! Not only do they learn how to make delicious dishes, but also how to practice delayed gratification by creating something together over time.

After a successful batch of cookies or tasty pasta dish, not only are bellies satisfied, but memories made that last a lifetime – ones that will definitely be looked back on one day with a grateful heart and childlike smile. So get the kids involved today – let them know they’re just as important in the kitchen as dad and mom!

3. Playing Games During School Holidays

If you’re looking for some good old-fashioned fun, nothing beats playing games with your family!  Playing games is an timeless way to bring together people of all ages and have a great time.

From card games like uno, to board classics such as Monopoly, or even some of the amazing video games gets everyone to increase their team work skills to bring everyone together For the younger kids, the exercise allow them to practice and learn to take turns.

You might be surprised just how much fun you can have while making good memories at the same time. Get competitive, joke around and enjoy each other’s company while doing something active that’ll make everyone laugh!

4. Create Something Together This School Holidays

We all take far too many photos these days. From selfies to record keeping photos; saving photos  taken by the preschool teachers. With the average person spending over three hours on their phone every day, it’s no wonder our photo libraries are overflowing. But what good are all those pictures if they’re just sitting on our phones, never to be seen again? 
 
This school holidays, why not involve your kids and family in compiling their memories? Go through your family photos together, shortlist the ones you want to print and make into photo albums or even for scrap booking. You can sort the photos by year and compile those photos into a yearly like some of our clients have done. It’s a great bonding activity and a rewarding experience to look back on those happy memories for years to come. It’s a celebration of little moments that benefit us even if they’re small.

5. Go On An Adventure

Exploring new places in your own country can be a fun and rewarding adventure. Taking the time to engage with new cultures, unfamiliar sights, and different sounds, can be energizing and inspiring. Take advantage of the opportunity, no matter where you live – hit the beach to watch a sunset, visit an old temple or take a night time stroll through the city. Be a tourist all over again. As a tourist you’ll be inspired by new experiences as you observe and learn from all that new environment has to offer – new life stories, food specialties and beautiful scenery. So no matter how often you’ve traveled before – don’t forget to take some time out and explore the new side of Singapore that’s waiting for you!

What Now?

This school holidays, don’t forget to prioritise family bonding. With the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, it’s easy to take time with those closest to us for granted.

There are many ways to share some special moments together. From getting outside in nature, cooking together in the kitchen, playing games on the couch, creating something together; whatever you decide on there will be an invaluable return – quality time spent with your loved ones!

Put aside all distractions from daily life – unplug from work emails and Netflix binges – and go on an adventure together.

Above all else, remember to have fun! And if you find yourself needing help in compiling photos into an album to keep those good times alive, then don’t hesitate to get in touch!

    As you witness your belly swells, you find your heart swells with so much love with each passing day.

    A feeling that is familiar to those who have experienced and are in the moment experiencing motherhood.

    Maternity photoshoot became a new concept ever since 1995 when Vanity Fair had Demi Moore looking all glorious with her belly swelling on its cover page. It was an overnight sensation that sparked the talk about a new age of photography, breaking barriers and gave rise to the prominence of maternity photoshoot.

    A photographer’s experience in Posing, Lighting, Styling and their Sensitivity towards the changes in your body are things that make an enjoyable maternity photoshoot.

    With over 1000 maternity photoshoots, there is no doubt that our photographers at Bambini have a tip or two in capturing the special time of your life.

    We have done many different types of maternity images from ‘Land’ to ‘Water’, Studio to Outdoor, – from Classic to Modern, Dark & Moody to Light & Airy, Monotone to Colourful… We are sure you will find something that suits what you have in mind…

    And of course, not forgetting our most recent introduction of our Maternity Milk Bath Photography, which you can do a combination of studio ‘Land’ shots with the family; followed by relaxing in nourishing Milk Bath in the tub on the second half of the shoot all done in the studio. Bambini Photography is the only studio in Singapore doing Maternity studio and milkbath in one session. All you need to do is let us know in advanced if you like to add on Milk Bath to your Maternity Photoshoot. Just turn up, relax and leave the rest to us.

    One of our Client’s Story:

    “We had an awesome maternity cum family photoshoot with Bambini. All queries with regards to shooting day, attires, photos selection, special upgrade packages etc. were addressed promptly and the staffs are also nice & warm.

    On the shooting day, our photographer Fatilyn has managed to capture all the precious moments in freeze frames. I can see joy, I can see love, I can see bliss in the pix. She also managed to capture my 2 elder kids’ cheeky moments. Friends have commented that there are so much love in the photos. And the service is really fast, I get to view the 100+ drafts on the same day of the shooting! We even manage to get their goodwill services for additional editing on some of the photos as per our request.

    Conclusion: love, love the photos outcome. Price is reasonable too & it feels comfortable doing the maternity shots as the photographer is very professional. Highly recommended to all friends out there & will definitely come back again for our future shoots.” – Felicia

    Celebrate Father’s Day – Studio Family Portrait Session 📸

    Celebrate Father’s Day – Family Photoshoot

    Father’s Day celebration in 2021 is going to be different, mostly scaled down compared to before.

    Dedicating this post to all fathers out there, men who are enablers, men who have provided, men who have taught, men who protect, men who spend their days constructing and reconstructing fatherhood.

    Let us rewind and understand more about how fatherhood came to be.

    Centuries ago, fathers primarily served as breadwinners, disciplinarians, someone who instilled moral and religious values – caring for children was left only to women. These days fatherhood takes on a more evolved role, gone are the days when fathers merely provided for the family financially.

    Modern-day fathers come in many forms and we have been blessed to work alongside, get involved with and witness fatherhood through our family photography. To see a relationship between mother and child is heartwarming and special; yet when we witness the dynamics between father and child, it speaks for itself.

    It is said that the greatest mark of a father is how he treats his children when no one is looking. As an observer and photographer, we notice the subtlety to capture the bonds between children and their fathers.



      It is never easy to be a father, we’ve heard it from our clients. How clueless they were when they first started, where they do not know what hits them most of the time. It is scary and daunting, but rewarding at the same time. Fatherhood is not something to be learned in school but something you experience along the way with the birth of each child. Watching your child grow, noticing their quirks, realizing they have picked up your habits and growing together.

      Naveen Jain once said that, “ Being a father has been, without a doubt, my greatest source of achievement, pride and inspiration. Fatherhood has taught me about unconditional love, reinforced the importance of giving back and taught me how to be a better person.”

      His words cannot be more true.

      So for this Father’s Day, do take the time to give thanks and acknowledge your father for what he has done and not.

      They are the hands that hold you when you need the guidance. They are the ones who will come down and talk to your bullies. Their willpower and tenacity has put you through school. They are the ones to give you a piggyback ride. They have shown you the ropes.

      To all the men who have shown us the ropes, we thank you.

      We dedicate this to you, all fathers, dads, padre, abah, papa, papi, bapak.

      I’ve done professional photos twice already with Bambini. It’s a great experience every time. And the photos they take are absolutely great quality! They are also very accommodating to my requests, and turn around time was fast. Totally worth every penny I paid. Great job Bambini! Keep it up! – Queenie, Jan 2021

      This is my 3rd time engaging photography services from Bambini and my return visits are proof that they provide really good quality shots and service! My daughter is someone who is slow to warm up to but my assigned photographer, Syafiq managed to make her smile and laugh in the end. Love the photos alot and will definitely consider Bambini again for future family shoots! – Derrick & Crystal, Feb 2021

      The Best Gift You Can Give | Bambini Photography Gift Vouchers

      What Is That Best Gift You Can Give?

      Give the gift of time!

      If you think about it, we are a time-scarce society…

      …”I’m busy”…

      …”I just don’t have the time”….

      …”Not now…”

      are the common phrases we always use in our daily conversations. Before we know it, time has slipped us by…

      Your kids have grown up, they are starting to look like little adults and not quite like chubby babies anymore.

      Your parents have aged… They are no longer like before…. grey hair overtaking the head, common ailments that comes with age starts to appear fast and furious…

      And you cannot rewind time.

      But here’s what you can do, you can look at photographs and remember…

      Even better, your photographs can tell stories to your children, and your memories become theirs.

      “Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

      More than just good photos we want to offer, but also a good time here with us, with your family.

      Your photoshoot doesn’t get you just pictures, but quality time with your family…

      You bring home: shared memories, a good experience, beautiful photos and a warm heart :)

      In a world addicted to speed, let’s SLOW DOWN.

      Enter into the present moment with all of your attention, and time will slow…

      Let’s think about it…

      When was the last time you had your family photos taken professionally?

      Was it at your Wedding?

      Your Graduation Family Shoot 5 years ago?

      Never Done One Before?

      Perhaps its time to start thinking about organising one for your family? Parent’s 60th/70th or 80th Birthday, Other half’s 40th, 50th birthday; Kid’s birthday; or

      Drop a super big hint to your other half by gifting them a family photoshoot gift voucher. They simply have to make time to come to utilise it. No more excuses.

      What about your boss, colleagues, mentors, clients, friends or relatives working very very hard for the their every day?

      Perhaps its time to get together to gift them a family photo session to celebrate time and update their family photos with their parents; kids or altogether in a big family photoshoot.

      Let us make it easy for you to give the gift of time.

      Bambini’s gift vouchers are available and each voucher can be personalized to include recipient’s name and your personal message.

      When Is The Best Time For Your Baby Photoshoot? | Baby Milkbath Photography

      We’re asked this often, “When is the best time for baby’s photoshoot?”

      And we would really just like to tell you anytime is a good time for us…

      But let’s look at why at 100 days or around the 3rd month, it is one of the best time for some pictures too!

      Why 100 Days Baby Photoshoot?

      1) Tradition? Perhaps… but this is what we’ve heard… 100 days commemorates the full 1 year from the time you conceive, and it signifies the hope for the baby to live to a 100 years old.

      2) It’s the time when your baby is all chub chub and baby rolls are your latest obsession and how you just can’t get enough of those fishball cheeks, so much so you just want to keep kissing them!

      3) More Experience in Handling Your Baby

      How you’ve experience such a steep learning curve when your newborn just entered into the world and absolutely changed yours, but now at the 3rd or 4th month, you’ve gain better momentum and you’ve become quite the pro at handling your babe… Now you’re ready for some lights, camera and action!

      4) You Might Still Be On Maternity Leave

      If you’re having a 4months maternity leave, then you’re still be on leave! There’s more flexibility timing-wise, and on our part, we’ll do our best to find the timeslot you like and works well depending on your baby’s schedule.

      5) Baby is More Alert & Engaging

      At the 3rd/4th month, your baby at this age watches faces intently, recognizes familiar objects and people at a distance, smiles more, turns head towards the direction of sound, and all those tummy time and stretching – we will get those photos of your baby engaging and interacting with you more :)

      6) New – Baby Milk Bath Photography In Studio

      Last but not least, it’s because we’ve something new in store for your baby of 3 months and it is completely new in town!

      And we like to introduce you to baby milk bath photography… What’s even better, you can just come soak and enjoy – like a spa for you and your babe!

      More importantly, we use the best milk bath ingredients imported from Japan and it moisturizes your skin and smells really good too.

      Is It Safe For 100 Days Young Baby?

      You and your baby’s safety and comfort is also our topmost priority, we’ve added an imported bath tub as well as water temperature control system in our studio, so we can get ready the milkbath at the optimum temperature you need.

      We also have control of our own air-conditioning, and we can adjust that to your liking.

      All these are indoor for your comfort and privacy.

      Can We Do Milk Bath Maternity + Baby Shoot (Before & After)?

      If you are looking to have the “Before & After” Maternity/Baby Shoot…

      Be the first few to have this done…We are the only one who offer private studio milk bath photography in Singapore at the moment.

      We offer our milkbath maternity and now you can continue telling your story with some images with our baby milkbath photoshoot too. Click here are some FAQ on Milk Bath Photography.
