A few of our favourite things to do this weekend
Here comes the weekend, mamas, and we can’t wait! From Spring Camping, to Masterclasses, check out some of the family friendly events that we’re loving over the next couple of days…
Watch the sunset (and sunrise) on a blanket, and chat around the campfire with the whole fam whilst you star gaze in Al Qudra. Sounds like a dream for a city mama! Learn how to set up the sturdiest of tents, then treat yourself to roasting marshmallows – all in Dubai’s the gorgeous outdoors! With bonfires (to dance around) and games to play, we doubt the littles will ever want to leave…
