7 #MomentsTogether You Can Spend As A Family That Are Actually Fun For Everyone

Fun For The Whole Family

Let's face it, there aren't a whole lot of activities that are 'fun for the whole family' (though many claim they are). 

A study conducted by Majid Al Futtaim found that 93% of UAE residents are happiest when spending time together with their families...but less than one third (30%) spend more than five hours together. 

We've gone out and found some great ways you can spend time with your family, so you'll be happy and they'll love it too!

Eating together

A simple way to spending quality time together is through enjoying meals without distractions. Whether you cook the meal at home, or head out to eat, great times can be had - just make sure to leave your devices off the table.

If you want something a bit interactive, try a sushi train to entertain the kids! 

Beach day out 

Okay, it's a bit of an obvious one, but who doesn't love the beach!? It's great for kids to burn off that excess energy, and to get some vitamin D, while you enjoy the beautiful sunsets and relax. 

Plus the older children can go paddle boarding or kayaking. 

Movie time  

With so many great kids films out (that have adult jokes in them too - thanks Dreamworks), it's easy to go out to the cinema, and have a great night. If you have little ones, try the kids' cinema at Vox in Mall of the Emirates - it's designed especially for children and there's even a party room attached!

Gaming adventures

If you think Magic Planet is just for children, you're wrong. There are bumper cars, mini-golf, bowling and all kinds of recreational activities you can do alongside the kidlets. 

For the more adventurous families, these are for you...

Ski Dubai

Snowboarding, skiing, penguins, toboggans, who wouldn't want to get involved in the fun at Ski Dubai? Because of the range of activities, there is plenty to suit all age groups, and you can enjoy it together.

Probably one of the most hilarious family experiences, iFly is indoor skydiving and will keep you all entertained for hours!

Bounce Dubai

Any adult who says they don't love trampolining is lying...or maybe a bit too creaky. But it's fun for adults and children and will bring out your inner child as you bound down the lanes, and try flipping into the foam pits.

So get together, and get out there!
