What to do with the kids during the Christmas Holidays on the Cape Point

Christmas is fast approaching us and it is now that you start wondering what are you going to do with the kids for all that time. It won’t be long now until they are breaking up from school.

As parents of a lively little girl we were trawling the internet looking for things to do over Christmas (luckily Gogo and Bappie (don’t ask) are going to be here for the whole of December, and Grampa is arriving for Christmas week (we will be sleeping in shifts I think)). The following are some of the more interesting things that we found to do with younger children (sorry, if you have teens you are on your own- may I suggest a holiday to Mauritius, and leave the kids at the airport in lost luggage or something- I know a good travel agent…)

Anyway, here it is (it is mainly copy/paste, but I figure anyone who wrote this stuff originally should be glad that I am punting their events for free):

 

Noddy’s Special Treat. 09 Dec to 22 Dec – Cost R40/ R50

Noddy wins two tickets for a train trip to the seaside, so he can take a friend with him.  Whom should he take?  Everyone wants to be his best friend so that he will choose them to go on the trip.

Come and meet Noddy and his friends Big Ears, Tessie Bear and Martha Monkey.  Naughty goblins, Sly and Gobbo, will be there too, making a nuisance of themselves.  Help to stop Sly and Gobbo’s tricks and play the Listening Game with Noddy.

The Caretaker back by popular demand

 

The Caretaker, an original Zip Zap Circus School show, choreographed by Adele Blank of Free Flight Dance Company, combines theatre, dance and circus in a show not to be missed.
This is a Zip Zap show with a difference. The show is set in a quaint apartment block inhabited by a kaleidoscope of young people and focuses on the caretaker and a homeless soul, who play an endless game of cat and mouse.
Brent van Rensburg, co-founder of the Zip-Zap Circus School says, “I believe this is the best show in 19 years.”
