This weekend is about escaping — to a world made entirely of colourful Lego, a relaxing yet happening picnic and the heart of the Amazon. Bonus: They're all kid-friendly!
#1: See the world in Lego colours.
Even if you're not a fan of Lego (but who isn't!?), it's hard not to be impressed by this UNESCO World Hertitage Art Exhibition. In addition to marvelling at 43 world heritage sites from 34 countries in Lego form, you also get to build your own Lego creations (the most creative models will be used to build a Singapore-inspired topographical map), and let your kids loose in the Lego kids play zone.

PIECE OF PEACE World Tour, July 27 to Sep 10 at Fort Canning Arts Centre, 5 Cox Terrace.
#2: Bask in music and food at a very Insta-worthy venue.
No better place to go for a picnic this weekend than to this festival, which boasts a pop-up flea market, Wheeler's Estate's Grill House's food and beer, and performances by musicians like ShiGGa Shay, Jack & Rai, Second Sunrise and more. For the full line-up of musicians, go to https://www.facebook.com/wheelersfestival/. Admission is free.
Wheeler's Festival, July 29 to 30, 12pm to 11pm at Wheeler's Estate, 2 Park Lane, Seletar Aerospace Park.
#3: Get closer to nature — in a theatre... indoors.
With a fusion of ballet, contemporary dance and capoeira, plus a sensational score comprising sounds recorded from the Amazon rainforest, this is the perfect chance to escape the city without actually leaving. Voices of the Amazon is a passionate dance musical that aims to highlight the damaging effects of deforestation, the loss of natural medicines and plants and the importance of sustainability. Perfect for teaching kids the beauty of theatre and dance, and of course, nature. For more info, go to www.MarinaBaySands.com/ticketing.
Voices of the Amazon, July 28, 8PM, July 29 2PM & 8PM, Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands.
