Let's go and have fun, Jozi. The city waits for us to get into our gear and aim. Let the games begin!

Dance classes

Dancing is no doubt a super fun way to get active. You're so busy having a good time that you forget you're actually getting some exercise. Joburg is full of places that offer dance classes. For the littler ones, don't be afraid to start random dance parties to their favourite tunes, even if it IS jiving to Baby Shark. Katz School of Dance offers a multitude of dance classes for kids, from hip hop and jazz to Latin and contemporary.

VR Gaming

If your kids are the gaming type, then treat them to some VR (Virtual Reality) gaming. They'll love you for it and you get the added bonus of getting them up, off and away from the couch for a little while. Places like Blue Ocean VR, BT Games are great places to do some VR gaming. BT Games has multiple locations including Sandton City and Cresta.

Tree-Climbing Adventures

Taking kids on outdoor adventures is also a great option. Getting them climbing trees, zip lining, doing obstacles, etc, is a sure-fire way to get the kids active. Places like Acrobranch are great because they provide a host of outdoor activities but you still have that added element of safety. And there are courses that cater to the little ones, older kids, teenagers and even adults so it's a lot of fun for the whole family.

Bouncing About

Everyone knows kids love trampolines, so trampoline parks like Bounce make for a thrilling day out for all ages. Plus, jumping is a great cardio workout. But it's so much fun, you forget that you're even getting your heart rate up... until you get home and you're ready to pass out standing upright. iJump and Gravity Trampoline Park are other alternatives to Bounce.

ten activities

Strawberry Farm

For those kids who are more laid-back and aren't big on adrenaline-pumping activities, Strawberry picking is a good option. Not only is it getting active from all the walking around but it's also the only delicious activity in this list. Enjoy some fresh berries at places like the Field Berry Farm and Tangaroa Strawberry Farm. Just keep in mind the berry growing seasons!

Go-karting is an age-old favourite for all ages, both young and old! It's adrenaline-rushing and fast-paced and the kids will most-definitely enjoy themselves. We love it so much, we wrote an entire article dedicated Go-Karting in Jozi.

ten activities

Maze Adventure

Maze adventures are an awesome activity for kids because not only are they getting active by walking, they're using their problem solving skills at the same time to get out of the maze. It's like exercising both your body and brain at the same time. Honeydew Mazes is a great place to go. Their giant mazes takes about 60-90 minutes to do but there's also smaller puzzles and mazes to complete and a few other games to take part in.

Obstacle course

Listen, obstacle courses are amazing. And no, we're not talking your P.E teacher's kind of obstacle course. We're talking castles, ball pits, bubble balls and much more! Jozi X is the ultimate adventure park to take kids to. Not only do they offer the most epic obstacle courses, but they have many activities that cater to kids of all ages!

Aerial Acrobatic

This is another activity that kids will enjoy! But don't worry, we're not talking Cirque du Soleil or Pink levels just yet. There are kid-friendly aerial acrobatics available in Joburg. Aerial acrobatics is great activity for muscle tone. Sky Dance Studio offer aerial acrobatics classes for kids.

There's nothing wrong with being a little competitive with your friends on the 'battlefield', it's a thrilling and entertaining experience. And best of all, it gives you ample opportunity to enjoy some friendly payback on a certain mate who has had it coming. Just make sure you watch your back because you never know when a return fire will strike. Expect an afternoon of running, hiding, ducking and diving, leopard crawling and practising your stealth skills while stalking your opponents. And don't worry, if you're hit, it only stings for a bit. Remember, pain is temporary but glory is everlasting!

So, if you need to plan something action-packed for a birthday celebration, a bachelor or bachelorette party, a team building exercise, or simply want to spend an afternoon outdoors, check out this paintball ranges around the city. Make sure to wear old clothes, and as for safety gear - you'll hire that at the venue.
