Home Team Festival Singapore 2015.

Andy is away for a fishing trip this weekend so the question beckons, what does a solo parent do with two kids?
Being alone means I have a tall order - must be convenient for me to travel to, fun and engaging for the boys, inexpensive.
I brought them to the Home Team Festival at Singapore Expo Hall 3 because my resourceful mummy-friend Serene recommended it, and true to her recommendation, it was impressive!
Before attending the exhibition, I thought Home Team security was only Police force and SCDF.
I can't be more wrong!
So what is the Home Team?
Ans: Home Team comprises ten agencies:
Ministry of Home Affairs Headquarters (MHQ),
Singapore Police Force (SPF),
Internal Security Department (ISD),
Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF),
Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA),
Singapore Prison Service (SPS),
Central Narcotics Bureau (CNB),
Home Team Academy (HTA),
Casino Regulatory Authority (CRA), and
Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE).

My boys love to play-pretend to be fire fighters, policemen, and soldiers.
You won't believe their collection of guns, hand-cuffs, helmets and vests we have at home.

The K9 demo was really good, too!
Sky, you have a lot of catching up to do.

The kiddy activities:

Or let the friendly fire fighters help your children up on these hugeass fire engines.

The fun didn't end at the Festival. We spent the afternoon doing craft work at home!
No gadgets today = major win for me :D
Now everyone is happy.
Today is the last day for Home Team Festival 2015.

Admission and activities were free, except for parking and food of course.
Everyone was given a goodie bag + a fire fighter's hat.
