Olympic Games Rio 2016 is finally here! Get the whole family cheering team out of the house and join the crowd to watch your team play at Tom and Serg’s Al Barsha pub.

If you need a break from the Olympic fever, wander out for a shopping trip in the Mall of the Emirates – perfect family day out!
When: Monday, 1 August – Monday, 22 August

Every mama who takes shopping seriously would know that retail therapy can be more tiring than a workout in the gym. We can gladly say the Dubai Mall’s latest addition is the solution for us to take a break from hitting the sales rail! With a towering mega structure, winding slides and a giant pit of soft balls, The Dubai Mall is taking the best bits of the playground and super-sizing them for a summer of fun! Customers who spend AED100 at any kids’ store in mall before will receive one complimentary session for a child to enjoy the attraction on the Lower Ground floor (PLUS a complimentary toy from The Toy Store!). Who says shopping with children in tow can’t be a blast?
When: Friday, 5 August – Tuesday, 30 August (10am-10pm)
Where: Star Atrium, The Dubai Mall
If you’ve been traveling over the summer and back in the desert city to get the kiddos ready for school, how about a late-minute summer camp that gives them the last push before school starts? From photography, paper sculptures to tie dyeing, Tashkeel’s Summer Camp 2016 is offering creative workshops for the kiddos who want to challenge themselves. They sure will be happy to make friends and learn to think and create imaginatively. Save the dates!
When: Sunday, 14 August – Thursday, 25 August (10am-1pm)
Where: Tashkeel Nad Al Sheba, Dubai
How much: AED 250 – AED 2200
The Pull Up Project, a group of Dubai-based young adults, are launching a sports camp to help children heading back to school combat bullying — by playing quidditch (Harry Potter fans anyone?). Set up by a high-school team of basketball players from the Winchester School Dubai to combine their love for sport with socially rewarding causes, Visitors to Camp Play will be able to boost their self-confidence and fitness through a variety of sports (football, basketball, yoga…you name it!) and get ready physically and mentally to head back to school.
When: Sunday, 14 August – Thursday, 25 August (10am-2pm)
Where: Dubai Sports World, DWTC, Dubai
How much: AED 350
Have a great week, mama!
