The long winter holidays stretch ahead and, for many families, filling those days can sometimes be a difficult task. Fortunately, for those of you living in Pretoria, there are lots of fun kids’ holiday programmes lined up this June and July. Here are a few ideas to warm up the winter days.
Kids School Holiday Fun
Montana Family Market Holiday Arts Programme
Get to Montana Family Market and let the children unleash their creative sides from the 3rd to 13th July 2018 in our School Holiday Arts Program. This Holiday Programmes takes place in the Myooi Food play area between 11am and 1pm each day. The fun activities are ideal for 5-12 years olds and cost just R10 for materials per child.
Each day provides a different theme and item to make including:
Name Bracelet (Tuesday 3 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – Let your kids practice their fine motor skills with threading and beading, making their own unique and beautiful name bracelets. This is a lovely keepsake or gift for granny.
Succulent Pot Plants (Wednesday 4 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – By planting and growing plants, children learn valuable lessons around nurturing, responsibility and discipline. Planting succulent plants is a great way to put these skills to test and what’s more, children love this activity.
Beaded Snowflakes (Thursday 5 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – Kids can put their creative skills to the test and let their imagination run free when creating beautiful beaded snowflakes. This is a hit especially for the avid Frozen fans.
Winter Cupcakes (Friday 6 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – There’s nothing better than the smell of freshly baked cupcakes in winter and your children can enjoy this activity at Montana Family Markets. This is a great activity for all the little bakers out there and keeps them entertained for hours.
Make Your own Catapult (Tuesday 10 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – For all the little adventurous boys, there is catapult making. Kids can enjoy this activity but also learn about important concepts such as gravity, leverage and weight. This is a must for budding little scientists too.
Bath bombs (Wednesday 11 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – Tired of nagging the kids to get into the bath? Nag no more. They can spend a good few hours making colourful and nice smelling bath bombs and then test them out during their next bath. A win for both Mom and kids.
Marshmallow Snowman (Thursday 12 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – Let your kids entertain themselves by making delicious marshmallow snowmen. A fun and tasty activity to do.
Fake Snow Making (Friday 13 July 2018, 11am-1pm) – Since there isn’t much natural snow in South Africa, why not make your own? This great activity keeps kids enthralled. They love playing with the fake snow and throwing snowballs at each other. For some fun and giggles, this is the perfect activity.
