My first thought whenever I’m asked to babysit my godchildren is, “What will I do with them?”

Luckily for me and exasperated parents, too, there are plenty of activities in Cape Town to keep the little ones entertained and stimulated.

Join me at the following events and activities and discover why the Mother City really is a kiddies’ paradise:

Cape Town International Kite Festival 2012

Face painters, clowns, brightly coloured kites and more await young Capetonians and their folks at the 18th annual Cape Town International Kite Festival in Muizenberg.

With kite-making workshops, non-stop kite-flying, craft and food stalls, as well as kids’ rides and a full programme of entertainment on the Coke Gig Rig, you’re guaranteed to have fantastic outdoor family fun.

Pack your sprog’s favourite treats, a blanket and sunscreen and treat them to a picnic in the impressive Green Point Urban Park this weekend.

From a play park with informative biodiversity boards to bicycle-friendly pathways, your children will love this outdoor activity.

Kiddies Playground at Rhodes Memorial Restaurant and Tea Garden

For playtime with an unbeatable view, you cannot do better than the Rhodes Memorial Restaurant and Tea Garden.
