How to keep the kids busy during the school holidays

Already tearing your hair out thinking of things to keep the kids occupied during the school holidays?

Fear not!

Help is at hand thanks to a new website that connects parents to the best child-friendly places in Cape Town and surrounding areas.

Agaaain! is the brainchild of mother-of-one Kristin Palitza who found a lack of suitable resources when she became a mom.

When I had my child, I was constantly looking for nice things to do with her. Things that would be nice for us parents, but also things that would be nice for kids, and it was really hard to find one resource that would offer that service.

I was working full-time and I didn't have the time to constantly look for things to do.

You can search by the activity you want to do, you can search by location and you can also search by children's age.
