Why don't you give these a go?
1. Creative with clay
The Clay Café – Cape Town
For those who love painting, decorating and keeping busy for the entire day, this airy space located under Table Mountain is a perfect dose of fun. Children can pick a clay item they would like to decorate and get creative with decorating the 'blank canvas' of clay. It is a relaxed atmosphere with a green garden and jungle gym to play on.
2. For the musicians out there
Little Maestros – Classical Music Concert for Tots - Cape Town
Classical music has a pool of benefits for young children. It helps develop fine skills and can be the start to a world of opportunity and enjoyment. Why not start now? The Young Blood Gallery in Cape Town is bringing classical music to “little ears” through the great classical musicians. Parents bring your child’s own favourite musical instrument for them to make their own music. This is also a relaxed way for parents to enjoy good classical music without the stresses of trying to keep the little ones quiet.
3. Horse back riding on the beach in Durban
Horse Back Riding - Durban
The Equine Ranch in Durban specializes in Beach Adventures on the scenic Reunion beach in the south of Durban. Guides show you the ropes and offer basic instructions in the art of riding. This is perfect for those who have never ridden before to learn something new. They will also learn to practice safety and kindness to animals.
4. The messier the better
Artjamming - Johannesburg (And Cape Town)
Art is all about the fun and freedom of mixing colours and expressing your ideas on canvas. Jackson Pollock sure made art look very easy. Children can spend the day with their friends in a safe environment creating something very special to take home. It's all about the splashing, spraying and wild brush strokes.
