Galeries Lafayette to host back-to-school activities

Face-painting and vouchers are part of kids’ line-up

Are you and the kids ready for back to school? Galeries Lafayette is holding a series of events for kids with some surprises in store for the season, just in time for the Eid holidays.

From Thursday August 16 to Sunday August 19, little ones will get to customise their back-to-school gear including shoes, backpacks, pencil cases, lunch boxes and more.

They’ll also get their faces painted in the coolest designs from 3pm to 6pm.

The event also means that parents who spend Dhs300 on back-to-school shopping will receive a complimentary customisation on goodies from 6pm until 9pm.

The same event will be hosted from Thursday August 23 until Saturday August 25, just in case you miss out on the hand-painted, customisation fun the first time around.

Galeries Lafayette LE GOURMET will be decorating cookies on Friday August 24 and Saturday August 25 – that’s one for the junior chefs right there.

Mums and dads, there will be some amazing discounts in there on favourites including Kipling, who will be giving a Dhs100 voucher back with every Dhs500 purchase, and Eastpack.

There are so many offers, so we suggest you head there and see for yourself. We know we will.

Who said back-to-school shopping needs to be expensive?
Free. Until Sep 30. Galeries Lafayette, The Dubai Mall, Downtown Dubai (04 339 9933).
