Taking the kids to a country trail where you can ride quad bikes is the stuff that really gets the adrenalin going. If you’re in Cape Town, South Africa. There are some kids quads for sale you can check out from the UK’s leading supplier of quality quads, and once you are all kitted out and have done some basic safety training, you are ready to explore the stunning countryside on four wheels. You can buy road legal machines, or quads that are to be used on private property, and this addictive pastime is one that your kids will never say no to.
The Paintball Experience
There’s no better way to enjoy an adventurous day out with your kids than donning the protective gear and heading into battle against an opposing team. The guns are pretty amazing, and, of course, once you’ve been hit, you’re out of the game. This will test both you and your children to the limit, as you plan your strategy to overcome the enemy, and with a lot of determination and a little good fortune, your team will be the one left standing at the end of the firefight!
Should you be up for this challenge, there are a few places in Cape Town you can check out. You will be the coolest parents around! Here are a few places to visit for a good paintball experience:
Family Treasure Hunts
This great day out can be combined with quad riding, and with each team given the same set of clues, you must find the treasure, which would be very well concealed. There are online providers of such adventure days, and by contacting a Quad dealer, you might be lucky, as many also organise these amazing adventure days out.
If you don’t want to leave the house or the weather is dull, the children would still enjoy an indoor treasure hunt!
Watching Your Favorite Team Play at Home
If your kids support the same team as you, by getting tickets for the family enclosure, you can all cheer the team to victory. This kind of outing inspires many youngsters to push the boundaries and become professional sportspeople in their own right. If you fancy a long journey, you could always take them to an away game, where the team needs all the support they can get.
Go Watch a Music Concert
If your kids have a favourite band and you can stand to listen, why not arrange a surprise? Tickets can be acquired online, and it will be something that stays with them for the rest of their lives. Either that, or you can educate your children regarding real music and let them experience the older generation music.
