Singapore-Inspired Ideas For Your Next Event This National Day

National Day in Singapore is celebrated every year on August 9th to commemorate the country's independence from British rule. As we celebrate this special occasion, why not also add some Singapore-inspired fun and games to the mix? Here are six ideas from The Carnival Fair that are sure to get you in the spirit of National Day during your event!

1. Iconic Dragon Playground Bouncy Castle

Every Singaporean is probably familiar with the iconic Dragon Playground in Toa Payoh. Built in 1979, it is one of the few remaining playgrounds from that era that is still intact today.

Our Dragon Playground Bouncy Castle is available for rental for any carnival games or events in Singapore. Towering at a height of four metres and fitting up to 14 children, it contains climbing walls, tunnels, and a giant slide for hours of entertainment.

2. Glitter Glue Tattoo

For National Day, why not try getting a Glitter Glue Tattoo? We have Singapore-inspired designs, such as the lion, crescent, and stars. All you need is a sticky sheet and a few different colours of glitter. Simply paste the sticky sheet to the desired area on your skin and then sprinkle the glitter over top. Wait a few minutes for the glue to dry, and then you're ready to go! If you love this idea, check out our other fun event activities suitable for both kids and adults alike.

3. Photo Booth

A photo booth is a fun, unique way to capture memories of your event day. Gone are the days of grainy prints and low-quality photos. Modern photo booths use high-resolution cameras and professional-grade printers to produce stunning images that guests will be proud to display. Best of all, the pictures can be printed out or shared digitally on the spot.

To put a uniquely Singaporean twist, design some photo booth props such as iconic Singlish phrases like “Bojio”, “Toh”, “Chope”, and “Lepak” to use at your photo booth!

4. Ball Pit

There's something about a ball pit that just screams fun. Maybe it's the fact that you can dive right in and start playing without having to set up any equipment. Or maybe it's just the way the colourful balls create a festive atmosphere.

Ball pits are also sensory havens for children – the soft balls provide tactile stimulation, while their different colours can be visually stimulating. Fill the rented pit with red and white balls for the ultimate show of patriotism this National Day!

5. Live Food Station

Live food stations are a great way to serve fresh food at your event or party. In light of National Day, go for classic Singapore snacks such as the spice-laden Kacang Puteh, sweet Tutu Kueh, or chewy Muah Chee

Everyone knows that Singapore’s weather can be real hot. Beat the heat with cool snacks like the colourful Ice Kacang or Potong Ice Cream that comes in various local flavours like red bean or durian.

6. Old-School Singapore Games

Today, many traditional local games are being forgotten as people turn to digital forms of entertainment. However, the simplicity of these classics is what makes them so special. So, why not round up some friends and have a go at these old-school games the next time you're feeling nostalgic?

Start with Five Stones where the objective is to throw one weighted stone into the air and catch it with the remaining other four stones. Another classic is Marble Balls, also known as goli, where you must hit your opponent's marbles with your own. For something a little more physical, go for Chap Teh, where players use their feet to keep a feathered shuttlecock in the air. Alternatively, try your hand at Pick Up Sticks or Congkak, which require you to test your strategic thinking skills. 

Whatever game you choose, you're sure to have hours of fun reliving your childhood memories.
