Have you heard about The Kids Shack? A cute, spacious, fun-filled indoor play and party venue right on your doorstep.
The Kids Shack is a source of hours of fun for kids aged 0 to 12 years with a baby zone, dedicated to all their littlest of visitors in the form of a soft play area (for the 0 to 2 year olds). There is also a fun fantasy play area for the 3 to 6 year olds. Actually there is a little somthing for everyone, including:
a massive indoor wooden jungle gym,
9 hole indoor putt-putt course,
and extensive push bike track,
a range of exciting games and activities and
arts and crafts.
Moms, dads or grandparents are welcome to come along and grab a cup of tea or coffee while your children play and knowing how busy life can get, they have a drop and go service for those parents who wish to leave their over 5 year olds with The Kids Shack for a while.
0 - 2 year olds: First hour R 30, or R 50 for unlimited playtime.
over 2 year olds: First hour R 40, or R 60 for unlimited playtime.
DROP AND GO: R 55 per hour, maximum of 4 hours for over 5 year olds.
9:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Here's how the parties work:
The Kids Shack has 2 party rooms so they are able to host 2 parties simultaneously if there is a demand, but the venue is big so this isn’t an issue. You have exclusive use of that party space, and the party kids make use of all facilities along with any other children who have come to play.
Party times are 10 am to 12 pm or 2 pm to 4 pm.
The cost for adults to attend the party is as follows:
First 15 adults may enter at no charge, but there is a charge of R25 per adult for each person after 15.
Please note that you are allowed to bring in whatever eats and cold drinks you would like for your little or adult guests, at no extra charge, except for hot beverages, which can can be purchased from them at a very affordable cost of R 12 for filter coffee or tea, or R 17 for cappuccino.
Their bike track is very popular, you are welcome to tell your guest to bring along their own push bikes, Y-bikes and scooters (no bicycles please) or make use of their range of little bikes.
You do however have the option to book out the entire venue for the duration of your party in which case they will not book another party (but still remain open to anyone who wants to pop in to play).

I found the perfect farm venue that your kids will definitely love (mine sure did). Picture an indoor party in a spacious rustic barn with animals, the party can't help but be a big hit.
Lat Wai Family Fun Farm
Farm Lat Wai is the best kept secret, out in the country, only 30 km from central Cape Town, where all enjoy themselves - from toddlers to grannies and grandpas. Situated in Joostenbergvlakte.
Animals inside and outside the barn include: cow, donkeys, horse, rabbits, goats, a pig, chickens and ducks. Included in the party package is treats for the animals and a staff member to help and monitor animal interactions. Basic decor and furniture is also included, like tables and chairs for the adults and tables and straw bales for the kids with a few optional extra's.
The Rustic Barn is most popular for kids parties, but they also have The Oak Tree Garden and Main House VIP area for casual weddings, corporate staff functions, birthday parties and spitbraai's.
There is something for everyone to enjoy at this family farm.
