What a mission putting together this list! Firstly, let me tell you, Cape Town has just about a million and more fun things to do for both young and old, it was near impossible sticking to only ten. With that said, it was most certainly a fun endeavour and in the end I sifted through the hoardes and settled on the activities that is sure not to break your bank. Infact for some you will pay as little as NOTHING! So here they are…
1. Willowbridge Mall Easter Holiday Program
Includes Lego Building, Easter Egg Decorating, Art Jamming including blank canvas and all material for R40 a session and book reading and puppet shows.
All this happening at Shop 14, Cape Quarter, Somerset Rd, Green Point OR Willowbridge Centre, Tygervalley from 4 – 12 April 2015

2. Artscape Theatre
Mrs Rabbit lived in her cosy burrow underneath the roots of a very big fir-tree. She had four little children, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail who were good little bunnies and Peter, who was sometimes a bit naughty!
Their neighbour Mr McGregor grew carrots, radishes and lettuce in his garden. The rabbit family would love to have gone into Mr McGregor’s garden to eat the yummy vegetables but Mrs Rabbit had forbidden her family to go into the garden as their father had had an ‘accident’ there.
One day naughty Peter decided to explore, but instead of going to school, he went to Mr McGregor’s garden …
Join the flopsy bunnies at Artscape and help Peter Rabbit escape from Mr McGregor’s clutches.
Opens 28 March. Book here
