Cresta Shopping Centre Is Sizzling This July


This July, Cresta Shopping Centre has plenty of news, fun and activities to keep you and the family busy and entertained, especially with the school holidays here. Think FIFA action live, a fun kids holiday zone for the little ones, new stores, a wide variety of restaurants and much more!

What To Do With The Kids These Holidays?

Stumped for ideas on how to keep the kids busy and entertained these school holidays? Especially activities that are both fun AND educational? Good news. Cresta Shopping Centre has partnered with the fantastic Young Engineers to bring shoppers a great activity for kids, from 29 June – 15 July 2018.

The enthusiastic team will provide an engaging, hands-on learning platform where educational goals are achieved by using LEGO® and K’nex® assembly kits, uniquely designed by their trained staff to demonstrate scientific principles in a fun way. The experiments are not only fascinating, but form scientific intuition with stories that capture the imagination.


The Young Engineers team will be set up at the Cresta Shopping Centre Kids Holiday Zone, outside The Barnyard Theatre on the Lower Level, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the school holidays, kicking off on Friday, 29 June 2018.

Here and the dates and times of the Cresta Shopping Centre Kids Holiday Zone:

  • Friday – Sunday: 29 June – 01 July 2018
  • Friday – Sunday: 06 July – 08 July 2018
  • Friday – Sunday: 13 July – 15  July 2018

  1. Bring the younger kids over for some play time with blocks and colouring-in fun at the activity zone (FREE, no booking required).
  2. Book a 60-minute workshop for the kids – 7 years or older only – for any time that suits you. Cost is R150 per child and bookings happen at the Young Engineers Zone.
  3. Book for one of the three FREE sessions per day (seats limited, workshop is worth R150) – for children 7 years or older only. Book at the Young Engineers Kids Zone or ahead of time online.
