Spring is in the air and it’s the perfect time to uplift your spirits or even relive some happier childhood moments. We’ve found the best games, movies and things to do online to add some summer cheer and add a little spring to your September step.  

Play: Spyro 

The adorable purple dragon first came to our PlayStation 20 years ago and, on 21 September, Spyro is back! The platform video game featuring a loveable purple dinosaur who had to free his dragon friends from crystal prisons. He travelled the world through various portals. The trilogy has been remastered with vivid colours and gorgeous new animations but with the same gameplay, we loved. It will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is a great video game if you’re looking for something whimsical that will remind you of ice cream and lazy school holidays with a game controller in hand.   


Learn: Udemy 

Spring always marks the need for a declutter and reinvention. What better way to start than with learning a new skill or expanding your horizons? is a free online learning platform that offers up more than 80 000 courses created by people around the world. The courses are aimed at working professionals looking to learn who might not necessarily have a full-blown qualification. The length of course and study time varies from course to course with some work helping you improve job-related skills while others are simply just a journey into the interesting. Courses are relatively cheap starting at around R130 and you can study anything from basic drawing courses to learning about artificial intelligence development.
