Candle Making in Muldersdrift
Head to the Ngwenya Glass Village in Muldersdrift and treat the little ones to a candle making workshop. Here they can learn how to craft their own creations from wax. They can colour and shape their very own candles in whichever way they please. It is a fun and educational way to keep their little hands and minds occupied. There are plenty of places to grab something to eat at the village, so the adults will have something to do too.
Little Cooks’ Club
If there is one thing the younglings need to learn, it’s their way around the kitchen. Book them a cooking class at the Little Cooks’ Club where they will learn how to prepare and cook simple yet delicious meals. This is a fun way for them to learn how to use a stove and oven with caution under professional supervision. Plus, there are different classes for different age groups.
Explore the universe from the comfort of an exciting planetarium at the University of Witwatersrand. Entertain and educate the little ones by showing them the night sky. It is sure to bemuse and amuse young and old alike. The planetarium has special rates for younger kids and older adults, and they even have family packages. Be sure to check their schedule as they offer different events at different times.
Yeesh Play Centre
The ultimate kids’ party zone is can be found at Yeesh. Slides, trampolines, jumping castles and even a massive ball pit… it’s all under one roof. Yeesh also does kids parties and has a fancy little coffee shop for the older people to enjoy. There’s a cookie baking station as well which the kids are sure to enjoy.
The cool people at Rosebank Mall have set up a super cool play area for kids this holidays, making it a great kid-friendly mall to visit. The safe environment is carefully monitored by professionals. There are tons of things for kids to do as they climb and slide up and down many of the blown up obstacles. The kids’ park also has a jumping castle or three for the little ones to enjoy.
