Our Top Winning Winter Activities for the Whole Family

Are you looking for engaging ways to entertain the kids during the winter months? Finding something to do in a hurry can be quite tricky and many kids’ workshops, shows and specials don’t carry on beyond the school holidays. So we’ve compiled a quick list of tried and tested outings that are open for business throughout the colder months.

 

Indoors

Feel The Rush

 

 

Rush indoor Trampoline Park in Claremont gives kids (and adults) the chance to let off some steam even when its raining cats and dogs outside. Rush features around 1700 square meters of the wall to wall interconnected trampolines, including dodge-ball courts, an 18000 cube foam pit, hydraulic slam dunk basketball hoops, battle beam and best of all a 4-meter high-Performance Wall. Rush also features a wavy lane and fidget ladder at selected parks. Rush accommodates non-participating guests with free WIFI, imported coffee, healthy snacks and cake bar while your family and friends enjoy the more energetic facilities that Rush has to offer.  www.rushsa.co.za

Elgin – Old Mac Daddy’s old refurbished Airstream trailers are quirky and cool. There is a dam on the property, several wine farms nearby and two jungle gyms, a pool and a kids’ entertainment room on the property. Babysitters can be arranged.  A must-see for a weekend escape with a difference. www.oldmacdaddy.co.za

Don’t let cold weather stop you and the kids from getting out and about. You’d be amazed how much there is to see and do in and around the Mother City during winter. There are loads of new adventures to be enjoyed. So be sure to explore more.
