A few of our favourite things to do this weekend
There’s lots of things happening this weekend – and the best bit is, most of them are indoors! Say bye bye to this awful heat and hello to a cinema trip, a workshop for kids as well as a spot of tennis…
Our favourite Pixar movie is back with a sequel: Finding Dory. Take the kids to watch this family-favourite this weekend for an indoor treat. This friendly but forgetful fish reunites with her loved ones and everyone learns a few things about family along the way.
When: Opening in cinemas on Thursday, 16 June
Where: Cinemas around town!
Give your kids an extra boost of confidence at this anti-bullying workshop. They’ll learn to recognise types of bullying, strategies for dealing with it, how to build confidence and assertiveness and more. It’s all age-appropriate too, and of course, fun and engaging for your minis. This one is for kids ages 6-9.
When: Friday, 17 June
Where: The Change Initiative, Al Barsha 1, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, UAE
How much: Register on Facebook here.
