Fun family things to do around Cape Town in December

In an effort to find some fun family activities to put into my advent calendar, I stumbled onto some great activities and events in December around Cape Town. I had to share - a lot of it courtesy of Cape Town Kids!

Any day fun things/ places:
  • The V & A Waterfront has some great Christmassy things on over this festive season. Things like Christmas carols every night, fun rides for the kids, giant Christmas tree, Santa's village, World record museum. Check their calendar out here
  • The Aquarium is always a great place to go if you're looking for somewhere to go. Especially if you have a membership - which allows you free access the whole year. Children under 4 go free anyways.
  • Bugs play park at Joostenberg on the way to Paarl is always great.
  • Talking about Joosenberg, there is a favourite restaurant of mine called Klein Joostenberg. It has a bistro and playground for the kids with a huge lawn to run around on. Bottomless coffee for moms is always a pleasure! There is also a nursery next door to pick up something on your way home.
  • Delvera estate has a great kiddies section, and on Sundays they have cart rides and shows for the kids. going to check that our soon!
  • The Crocodile farm at le Bonheur in Paarl
  • Giraffe House on the way to Stellenbosch
  • Spier is always great to take a blanket and have a picnic
  • Table Mountain - really want to try that with E going up the cable car
  • The Ostrich Ranch
  • Picnic at Kirstenbosch
Special events for December:
  • Whole of December - World of Records museum at the Waterfront
  • 9 December - the Spier Festival of White lights
  • 9 - 10 December - Paarl Monument full moon picnic. Meet Santa (who hands out gifts to your kids) and picnic under the stars. They also have a Carols by candlelight picnic on the 4th.
  • 15 December - Meet Santa at the Waterfront Santa's Village
  • 10 - 15 December - The Caretaker at the Zip Zap Circus
  • 15 - 17 December - Carols by Candlelight at Kirstenbosch
Hope this gives you some ideas for what to do as a family during December!
