A few of our favourite things to do this weekend
The weekend is (without a doubt) our favourite time of the week, so we’ve made sure to pack our calendar with plenty of awesome, family-friendly events. With the Kidette store opening, a Dragon Boat race and a Superhero event all happening over the next few days, it’s time to make the most of it, mamas!
Shopping for the kids is easy (ahem, a little too easy sometimes…), but keeping their style inline with ours (and our budget) is where it can get tricky. Well, guess what, mamas? We’re in luck: this new luxury kids store opens in “The Mall” on Jumeirah Beach Road, and we’re all invited to their launch! With 30 brands from all over the world you can guarantee there’s plenty to love for your little boys and girls.
When: Saturday, 30 April, from 3pm to 6pm
Where: The Mall, Jumeirah Beach Road. Umm Suqeim, across from the Jumeirah Beach Hotel
How much: Free entry (warning: come ready to shop!)
We all know picking a safe space for your little to learn can be tricky… So if you’ve been hunting for a mama-approved resource, this interactive program offers us just the chance to check out Dubai’s best nurseries!
