  • Making Easter Eggs from Paper

    Easter time means Easter Eggs! One of the most popular activities to do during this time is painting eggs, but OMO has another idea for you. Instead of breaking a few odd eggs, especially with your kids’ dainty fingers, you can make paper Easter eggs! These can be given away as personalised gifts to those your little ones love, such as an aunt, cousin, grandparent or school teacher. "'

It’s time to celebrate!

As South Africans, most celebrations have an important cultural and historical background, and often involve traditions that go back hundreds of years. Getting kids involved is not only fun for you and for them, but it’s an opportunity for them to learn more about their heritage. From Freedom day celebrations for kids, preparation for Heritage Day to Nelson Mandela Day activities, we have lots of inspiration.

The best celebrations are full of laughter, and nurturing your child’s sense of humour is an important part of their development. April Fool’s Day is a great excuse to be silly and there are plenty of spooky yet silly kids' Halloween activities and costumes you can try.

Give your kids something to really look forward to by involving them in the preparation for special days like birthdays, graduation and more. It’s a great way to maintain their excitement and enthusiasm, and gives you an extra pair of hands too!

Kids learn best when they’re having fun, so why not teach them some important lessons during playtime? Our celebration-related activities will help you teach plenty of important skills: from physical co-ordination to creativity and mental maths.
