Some days we really just have no idea what we can do or where to go in Singapore, and this might be especially hard for couples looking for fun activities to do together. I’m sure there are couples out there that want to try something new but aren’t even sure what to do.
Luckily for you lovebirds, I’ve compiled a list of couple activity ideas that are great interactive fun for pairs in Singapore. This is ironic coming from me, since I’m single af, but oh well at least this will give you some options!
Remember that scene in Princess Diaries when Mia and her mum were creating art with paint-filled balloons and darts? This is the next best thing.
At Splat Paint House, you and your date will have the freedom to create a work of art. They even have a special date night package for couples! Click here to check out the rest of the Splat Paint Menu.
This isn’t your typical art jam session, things will really get messy! Splat Paint House will be at MOX till 28 October. From then on they will be relocating to another location.
We’ve all seen the famous movie scene in “Ghost” with four hands moulding some clay. Yes I know, pottery class is such a cliché. But don’t knock it till you try it!
This could really be a great bonding activity for you guys—I went with my colleague and it was genuinely so relaxing moulding this piece of clay into a piece of art. If things have been super tense and stressful lately, I highly encourage you to join a pottery class with your partner, although I wouldn’t recommend trying to make pottery with four hands.
A trial session at Urth & Phire is 1.5 hours and costs S$60. Click here to find out more about their pottery classes.

Things aren’t always smooth sailing in relationships. Quarrelling with your partner? Need to vent out your frustrations? Head down to the Axe Factor and release all that pent up anger together! At S$28/hour per pax, you both can hurl axes to your heart’s content.
This is not your typical activity in Singapore, but it sure is fun.
Axe Factor: 200 Turf Club Road, #01-32A The Grandstand, 287994 | Tel: +65 8268 9205| Opening Hours: (Mon – Thu) 12pm – 10pm, (Fri) 12pm – 1am, (Sat) 10am – 1am, (Sun) 10am – 10pm | Website | Facebook | Instagram
It comes as no surprise that ice skating is on this list. After all, ice skating is a total cliché activity for couples in movies. Plus it’s extra romantic around Christmas time when the rink is filled with fake snow!

How about doing something more meaningful? Volunteering at SPCA could be a really great thing to do as a couple, and I’m sure many couples haven’t done this. You’ll have to be able to commit to this for a minimum of four months, so this will help test your level of commitment too.
Next on the list is terrarium making—which could be a great idea if you want to give your partner a hand-made gift (not much of a surprise though if you’re doing it together). Terrarium making is a cute, little date option, especially if you’re not into strenuous activities like dancing or ice skating.
The open terrarium project kits range from S$38 to S$42. Click here to browse through the different terrarium project kits!
Mon-Wed & Sat: 10am-6pm
Sun & PH: By workshop appointment basis only
Epic Workshops offers several engaging craft workshops such as candle making, tile making, and leather crafting. Here, you and your partner can make your own soy candles from S$38-S$45 per pax. After melting the wax, you’ll be able to customise the candle, choosing from a variety of colours and scents.
Baker’s Brew offers baking classes for you and your partner. Learn how to make a variety of desserts, such as matcha white chocolate cake, Disney macarons, and homemade brioche doughnuts.
Yeah, you could do this at home. But usually, when we try baking at home, the final product doesn’t really look the way we want it to. At least in a baking class, you’ll have an instructor to guide you every step of the way. Besides, buying all the ingredients is a real chore.
If you’re want to challenge yourselves and make something extra fancy, why not take a baking class at Baker’s Brew? Other than baking cake, you’ll learn how to make Swiss meringue buttercream, how to work with fondant, how to make streusel, and many more.
There are three Baker’s brew branches in Singapore, located at Paragon mall, Upper Thomson, and Sembawang. Click here to browse through their class schedule as well as the types of cakes and desserts you can bake.
What better way to up the romance factor than stargazing at the Science Centre’s observatory? With all the city lights in Singapore, it’s hard to even see the stars in the sky. Up until recently, I didn’t even know the Science Centre’s activities include stargazing.
Luckily for you, they have free and open-to-all sessions. Click here to find out more about it!
Opening hours: 7:45pm-10pm (Closed on Public Holidays and during inclement weather)
For couples who are feeling more adventurous, try out a bachata dancing class at Dancing With Friends!
It’s fun, different, and on top of that you get to practice your Latin American dance moves for your future wedding. At Dancing With Friends, a trial class for a single person is S$15. If you sign up as a couple, it’s $25! Spice up your relationship and challenge yourselves to synchronize your dance moves.
It’s important to put in effort into your relationship, no matter how long you both have been dating. Hopefully, this list of couple-y activities will encourage more Singaporeans to get out of their comfort zones and try something new with their partner.
