September holidays are here, which means we have a little more time to spend with our little friend. As much as we would love to spend some time outdoors, the haze doesn’t allow us to. We decided to head indoors to the museums. This time we visited the Singapore Philatelic Museum for the “Counting Sheep, Dreaming Goats” Exhibition.
It is a compact and interactive one-room exhibition that tells you everything about sheep and goats.
You learn about the young,
differentiate between the sheep and goat, even their sounds! There is a button to press for the sound the sheet and the goat makes. Our little friend certainly enjoy this one!
You also get to meet the breeds through a collection of stamps presented on turn-over-boards,
and feel the wool produced by different species.
You will also get to meet Dolly, the cloned sheep. All informative and educational for the older children and even the adults.
There are also a few other touch-and-feel/play sections suitable for the younger children. You get to feed the goat and know its diet,
touch wool and other wool products,
hit on the kompang, a traditional Malay drum whose head is made from goat hide,
and play two melodious tunes about the lamb and sheep on the toy piano!
All in all, both the adults and the little one enjoyed themselves at this exhibition, which ends on the 27th September 2015. If you are looking for somewhere indoor to bring your little ones, these sheep and goats would definitely enjoy your company!
