It’s not just about fancy gifts, even though they are lovely and sure to please. It is also about the memories you create together as a family that can be treasured for years to come. Why not try one of these ideas to reinforce that special bond you have.

Al Azhar Park

Spend a morning or afternoon in the heart of Cairo’s most historic area, surrounded by rich history and culture. Enjoy the fresh air and space to walk, play and explore. There are so many things to do and see, as well as places to grab a bite. It needn’t break your budget, and any photos taken will be great souvenirs to keep.

Baking Day

Why not roll up your sleeves and cook up a storm in the kitchen? Cakes, cookies and pies, baking is said to be very therapeutic (you needn’t think about the calories). At the end of the day you will have a full larder, and something yummy to show for your efforts.

Board Games

Ban TV, smart-phones and all things electronic for the day and dust off your Scrabble, Monopoly and tawla board. Even Snakes and Ladders can be fun! Let your competitive spirit take over, it’s a great way to have family fun.

Go Karting

For an adrenalin-packed day head out to AutoVrooom, the first international professional racing track in Egypt for both rental and professional kart racing. It is guaranteed family fun, with children as young as eight being able to enjoy being on wheels.

Pharaonic Village

Learn more about Egypt’s rich history and culture at the Nile-side Pharaonic Village in Giza while enjoying myriad activities like a 9D cinema and petting zoo. Dress like a Pharoah, or Cleopatra and have your photo taken to be a souvenir of a fun day out.

Ski Egypt

If a weekend in Chamonix or Val D’Isere is beyond your reach, pop along to Mall of Egypt and have a snow-filled hour or two. Put on your sweaters and ski, snowboard, sledge and take a trip on the Polar Express to the kids’ play area. Round things off with a decadent hot chocolate to make it a perfect day.
