Agaaain is a website that connects parents to the best child-friendly places in Cape Town and surrounds.

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.

Kristin Palitza, Founder and director - Agaaain!

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

Kristin Palitza, Founder and director - Agaaain!

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

Kristin Palitza, Founder and director - Agaaain!

Here are Kristin's top three picks for the holidays:

What: Happy Snappers Photo Club for Kids Where: Castle of Good Hope When: 19th and 20th of June E-mail: infohappysnappers@gmail.com

What: Traditional Children’s Magic Festival Where: College of Magic at 215 Imam Haron Road in Claremont When: 10am, 11am, 2pm and 3pm daily from the 19th to the 22nd of June. Tickets are available to be purchased online via Quicket for R90 per person, or for a special 4 ticket family combo for R300.

What: Cape Town Science Centre When: 15 June - 8 July Where: 370B Main Road, Observatory info@ctsc.org.za
