Not only is it good to have indoor options in Shanghai for cold, hot or polluted days, but parents with older kids are always looking for the best fun for teens in Shanghai.
Here’s a few choice options that we love!
Yup, their specialty is pottery.
The teachers are really friendly and fun. It costs kids ¥600 for four one hour sessions, with small added apron fee and ‘firing fee’ for actually making their creations finished and ready to take home with you.
They also have group rates — contact for fees.
Address: The Pottery Workshop is at 1A, Lane 180, Shaanxi Nan Lu
Woodwork at ZoWoo
This place is so cool. We’ve had it on kid authority that it is!
Both kids and adults too get to pick what items they want to make with a set price. This is better for kids age 8 and up as it does involve real woodworking tools.
Joy City mall has lots of great restaurants on the 8th floor to pick from after you’re done.
Address: 8/F Joy City, 180 Xizang Bei Lu (North of People’s Square) Tel: 18516561623
East Shanghai Shooting and Archery Club
For kids around 12 and up, enjoy a fun weekend by making lethal weapons explode forth. You can also go medieval with bows and arrows. You must take your passport.
It costs ¥10 per bullet (shooting range), ¥25 per 12 arrows.
