We’re very excited to be holding our first ever Time Out Kids event, where we’re hoping to meet as many of you, our lovely readers, as possible. So keep December 13 free for our Teddy Bears’ Picnic and head down to our grassy knoll at Le Royal Méridien, Dubai Marina, for an afternoon packed with games, competitions and bear-faced fun.

Come and shake paws with Elliott, the furry new face in the Time Out Kids team, and don’t forget to bring along your own teddy bear – there are loads of competitions for your cuddly friends to enter, including biggest, smallest, best dressed, most loved, ugliest, best preserved and most unusual. Oh, and colour in Elliott in this issue’s pullout for a chance to win yet more Time Out Kids goodies. All mums and dads will need to bring is a rug to sit on, where you can enjoy the delicious picnic tea we’re preparing.

There’s a train ride, football shoot-out, rodeo bull and endless chances to win on our games stalls. Plus there’ll be sporty events for the whole family to enjoy, including the big foot race, the clown relay and the hilarious key to the chest water game. Stilt-walkers and balloon benders will be on hand to entertain, and there’ll be puppet shows and magic displays, as well as bouncy castles and face-painting.
