Not every restaurant in Gauteng can be considered “child friendly”, and when that inevitable birthday comes along it’s good to be able to go to a website where you can find a whole bundle of kid friendly restaurants to choose from. Fortunately many of today’s family restaurants have special plans to accommodate a child’s birthday party, and those plans can come in many shapes and sizes, from jumping castles to clowns, and trampolines to tree houses.
Before you actually go ahead and make a booking at any of the many child friendly restaurants within easy reach of either Johannesburg or Pretoria, give careful thought as to how many kids and parents there are going to be at the party. Some venues may have a limit on the number of children and grown-ups that they can accommodate at one sitting, and one of the first things they are going to ask you when you book is “How many children will there be, and what is their age group?”
We’ve all been to child friendly restaurants where an entire group of waiters and waitresses get together and sing “Happy Birthday to you” along with sparklers sticking out of a rack of spareribs – that’s just one of the many simpler ways of catering for children’s parties. But there are many other types of children’s entertainment to choose from, and the difficulty is not “where to go?” but rather “Which one do I choose?”.
One form of entertainment that always goes down well with kids is the magician – especially when he or she can throw in a number of laughs, and there’s nothing better than to be able to see a group of children laughing their heads off. With so many different party venues to choose from throughout the Gauteng region, it’s almost impossible to have a children’s party that’s a failure.
