Need a shopping session, but not sure how to keep the kids entertained? Spend Dhs100 at City Centre Me’aisem any day until Saturday April 20 and get an access token to a whole host of activities for kids aged five to 10 at the mall’s Kids’ Spring Backyard.
The pop-up is back with plenty of edutainment, including everything from origami and class-painting sessions, to braided bracelets and flower-making workshops where kids can make all sorts of knick-knacks. Plus, young artists can get creative at the tape, geometric, quilling and collage art sessions, which will take place on a regular basis.
If the kiddies fancy a bit more movement, they can jump into the ball pit or up and down on the trampoline. Teens and tweens can challenge friends to matches at the PlayStation zone and families with young kids can enjoy free movie screenings daily.
You can also head to other City Centres for some spring fun, including City Centre Deira, which will be hosting another pop-up with hands-on science games, music lessons and fitness classes until Friday April 12 from 4pm until 8pm – better catch it. Parents who shop for Dhs200 can drop their kids off the supervised, interactive area.
At City Centre Mirdif, kids can discover space or Mother Nature. If you visit on weekdays before April 11, you could be one of 25 families to win a complimentary pass to Little Explorers, where little ones will learn all about rockets and space stations, also improving their balance and coordination through dynamic games.
Dhs100. 10am-10pm. City Centre Me’aisem, citycentremeaisem.com.
