Easter 2016 in Cape Town: Fun and Games for the Whole Family
It’s that time of year again…
A time where moms and dads wake up early in the morning to hide chocolaty goodies in the garden for the annual family Easter egg hunt…
A time where nearly every kid gets a tummy ache after eating too many chocolate bunnies…
And most years we spend Easter at home enjoying our haul of sweet treats (hopefully taking care to avoid a sugar coma). Luckily for us, there are a host of great events coming up in Cape Town that are designed for the whole family.
Here are three things to do in Cape Town this Easter weekend:
1. Family Fun and Games at Spier
Spier wine farm in Stellenbosch will be hosting some great Easter activities over the Easter weekend. There will be a market with live entertainment and delicious local food and drinks to tickle your taste buds.
They’ve got amazing kiddie’s activities planned including a jumping castle, an Easter egg hunt, themed farm games, workshops as well as a kid-friendly entrepreneur market.
Don’t worry, grown-ups – they haven’t forgotten about you. There will be amazing DIY workshops that include ice cream making, cooking classes and more.
Date: Friday, 25th – Sunday, 27th March
Time: see website for times
Where: R310, Stellenbosch, 7600
2. Easter Chocolate-Making Classes with Lindt
This is a definite treat for your little ones this Easter.
Book a heavenly session for your kids at the Lindt Chocolate Studio this month, and the master Swiss chocolatiers will show them the art of chocolate-making, including a lesson on how to make a Lindt Gold Bunny of their own.
Hopefully they’ll share some of their masterpieces with you!
