World Water Day falls on Wednesday and the Children’s Museum Singapore has planned free activities for kids aged four to eight. 

Join the museum’s mascot WonderBot on a mission to discover different water sources and how every drop of water counts.  Your children can also create paper wristbands to pledge their commitment to the environmental cause. 

“Singapore is an island that lacks natural water resources, so it is important for kids to learn about saving water from an early age,” says a museum spokesman.

I Can Be A Water Hero takes place on Saturday and Sunday, from 2 to 3.45pm, at the Discovery Room on level 2.

Dedicated to families with children aged 12 and younger, the museum is located at the premises of the former Singapore Philatelic Museum. Admission is free for Singapore citizens and permanent residents.
