Here are some quick tips to make them happy without breaking the bank:

1. Plan an epic picnic in the park

Whether it's a huge public park or your neighbourhood taman, bring your kids out to enjoy a few hours of nature. Get some real family bonding time without screen time. Play with bubbles, go cycling, kick a ball around, and let the little ones run around to their heart's content. 

Pack simple, healthy food like cut fruits, pasta, and sandwiches, and make a day of it!

Pro tip: Go early in the morning or late evening so to avoid the hot sun and be sure to use sunblock and mosquito repellent.

2. Host a swim party in your own backyard

If you don't stay in a condo that has its own swimming pool, consider getting a small inflatable pool (or two!) and set it up in your own backyard. Fill up a big bucket with water balloons and get some water guns. 

Invite your friends who have kids and turn it into a potluck or barbecue, so you can have fun while the kids enjoy a splashing good time!

Pro tip: Make sure to invest in a pump for your inflatable pool, otherwise you'll be spending the whole day blowing it up! 

3. Get creative in the kitchen with your kids

There's no better way to get your kids interested in nutrition and food than by inviting them into the kitchen! Especially good for picky eaters, let them explore food first-hand and create super cute edible food art while you're at it.
