There’s nothing like unleashing a little creativity – both for mamas and kids – to take your mind off how hot it is outdoors! We’re absolutely loving the range of classes and workshops on offer at thejamjar in Al Quoz – from interactive art and music workshops for parents to enjoy with their kids to Mister Man ‘pop art’ for ages 3-6 and even free sessions including portrait painting and learning to paint with watercolour – it all sounds absolutely fab.
Kids aged 6-11 can get stuck into the most amazing range of workshops at Le BHV Marais in City Walk (that’s a gorgeous French department store if you weren’t sure). In collaboration with Collage Center, the littles can try their hand at everything from painting their own portrait in Van Gogh style to creating wind chimes or dream catchers plus using recycled items to make art and much more. They’ll also get a delicious kiddie meal and you can get a 30% discount on Careem rides to and from Le BHV Marais with the code Le BHV Marais. Allez!
