Happy Thursday, mamas! There’s lots going on this weekend – stuff for the kids included. It’s World Tourism Day, so why not head out to Al Marjan Island for a quick getaway, or start on the Halloween celebrations early over at ARTE? All this and more!
We love a bit of Cine Splash at Dubai Polo Club, keeps the kids occupied and its just one of those #onlyindubai things we love. Two nights of movies while chilling in the pool, brilliant! For those that aren’t members of the Polo Club, it’s just AED45 and AED35 for small movie buffs aged 4-12.
Where: Dubai Polo Club, Arabian Ranches
When: Thursday and Friday evenings from 6.30/7pm
Booking:+971 (0)4 361 8111

To market, to market…
ARTE, the Makers Market, is hosting a Halloween special tomorrow. It’s the season, mama, so bring your little one for some suitably scary times. There’ll be Halloween-themed sweet treats, fun and games for the whole family. You may even find accessories for your costume for the actual day… You can also pick up a local pumpkin from awesome British mama Catherine McEvoy who is raising money for a very good cause.
When: Friday, 23 October, 11am-7pm
Where: Times Square Center
Shop ‘til you drop
Shop, eat and drink at Reform Social and Grill. There’ll be bubbles (goodness knows we need a glass or two this week, mama!) as well as 14 of our favourite vendors – and lots of space for the kids to have fun in. It’s time to start gearing up for the holiday season!
When: Saturday, 24 October, 12-6pm
Where: Reform Social & Grill Dubai
Paint with all the colours…
… of the wind! If you’ve got a creative teen that is training to be the next Picasso, why not enrol them in an Expressive Art workshop? The class size is small (up to 15 students!) and spots are AED300. This one is suitable for kids aged 12 to 15. Their mixed media piece will definitely take pride of place at home!
When: Saturday, 24 October, 10am-12 noon
Where: Kidz Venture, Double Tree by Hilton, JBR
It’s World Tourism Day and there’s a free community event over on Al Marjan Island. There’ll be a cultural village complete with talented henna artists, Arabic story tellers, face-painting and even an outdoor cinema with screenings of classic family movies. Did we forget to mention there’ll be a display of fireworks to round off the evening? Sounds like this one will be a hoot and great way to get away for a bit!
When: Thursday, 22 October & Friday, 23 October, 2pm-10pm
Where: Al Marjan Island
Start your engines
