A few of our favourite things to do in Dubai this week
The holy month of Ramadan is upon us (check out a list of places that are open for breakfast and lunch here!). So this week, we bring you a fair few events going on to keep the kiddos entertained right before the holidays.
School’s out! Well, nearly, but it’s coming up and oh, gosh, we can’t wait for the kiddos to be spoilt rotten by friends and family back home – but how to make sure they don’t go all brattish on you?! Head over to Umm Suqeim and listen to Super Granny – yep, she’s a real person! She’ll give you some tips and tricks on how to cope with the upcoming holiday madness (and on keeping your whole family happy and sane!).
When: Monday, 6 June, 8.45am-10.30am
Where: Villa 74A, Street 16C, Al Safa 2, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
How much: Free, register by emailing Laetitia@tishtash.com.
For the third year running, Tom&Serg host Rule The Roast. Dive in headfirst into a delish roast dinner (mmm…Yorkshire pud!) at this cool café’s special pop-up. Whether it’s Black Angus rib eye beef, roast chicken with rosemary salt and stuffing or Aussie roast lamb you’re after, you’ll definitely leave with a food baby in tow.
When: Every night from Tuesday, 7 June to Saturday, 11 June at 7pm
Where: 15A Street, Al Quoz Industrial 1, Dubai
How much: AED 100 per person
Stay cool and get painting, mamas! Creative little tots will love being able to express themselves at thejamjar while you and hubby unwind and show off your talents. A painting package that includes four canvases (one for the whole fam!) is on offer throughout Ramadan so all of you can have fun… and you’ll create some wonderful memories which you’ll get to display at home.
When: Throughout Ramadan
Where: thejamjar, RKM Properties, St. 17a, Comm 368 Al Quoz 3 (behind Dubai Garden Centre), Dubai
How much: AED 250 for four canvases
Ramadan is around the corner, so if you’re looking for ways to keep the kids entertained, head over to Reform Social and Grill. Each Tuesday throughout Ramadan, they’re hosting a playdate for mums and kids after school. There will be a market, kids corner movie, face painting and afternoon tea. Sounds like a hoot!
When: Every Tuesday from 14 June until 5 July
Where: Emirates Hills exit off SZR, (left under the flyover and then left into The Lakes), Dubai
How much: Free!
