City Centre Me'aisem opened its pop-up installation on Sunday to bring outdoor fun inside to mall goers, with everyday featuring a different theme for all members of the family.

There will be free family activities including wellness to music lessons from 2pm to 8pm starting with Scientific Sundays.

The workshop will provide children the opportunity to explore robots and other science basics, followed by Earthy Mondays to educate families about the benefit of recycling.

Dazzling Tuesdays feature trained professional dancers to get children moving and shaking.

“Children can choose from a foot-tapping afternoon learning new dance routines or get acquainted with the basics of playing an instrument as well as create their own orchestra,” the mall said in a statement.

Mothers aren’t left out with their own special night, Ladies Wednesdays. Adult arts and crafts including tips at the hands-on floral making workshops where women can create flower bouquets and vases. There will also be cupcake decoration as well as jewellery making workshops.

Theatrical Thursdays give families a time out after a long week with a movie corner and an animated puppet and marionette shows. Magic Phil and professional balloon twister, Mr Adie, will be on hand to set the atmosphere for the circus workshop.

And rounding out the week is a joint effort with My Gym to bring fun to working out for kids in Sporty Saturday. The mall said: “The Backyard to help them develop physically, cognitively and emotionally.”
