High five, mama! You’ve survived another week! We know (and YOU know) that you deserve a week filled with fun activities with the fam. There’s a LOT happening around town and you wouldn’t wanna miss out…
BurJuman is taking the kiddies to the land of Wonder where ethereal trees and wonderful creatures abound.

Don’t miss out the Forest Creatures Parade every weekend in the evening – stilt walkers and flower fairies are there to welcome you!

Love football? Love golf? How about footgolf? Created for golfers and non-golfers of all ages, footgolf is the perfect family sports activity that is all about fun, exercise and precision. If you are tired of the traditional sports games, this is the chance to try something new with the littles and kick away the heat this summer! Time for team fam to rock!

There’s no harm having more fun before the school starts, right mama? Treat your kiddies to their pick of fun shows, creative art and crafts, creative training and more at the sprawling Creekside park. Don’t forget to check out the Doraemon shows, scheduled each weekend to add to the fun lined up.

A concert night with the fam can’t go wrong – especially if it’s an Indian gig that will spice up the evening! Head over to the Ice Rink, Al Nasr Leisureland, where the multi-talented Ayushmann Khurrana is all set to rock it out with his band Ayushmann Bhava for the first time in Dubai. Catch them live alongside with musicians playing Jazz, folk music and a playlist of retro Hindi and English melodies.

If sewing isn’t your thing, mama, then this workshop is perfect for you! Once you learn that horror provoking task of inserting a zipper, your sewing takes on a whole new dimension. It’s not as hard as you think and once you’ve learnt how you will want to put zippers in everything! This workshop teaches absolute beginners how to make a lined zipper pouch that has a thousand and one uses around the home, not to mention school and work too (hmm, we wonder what unusual use you will come up with!).

Have a lovely weekend, mama!
