Little Griffins Activities

Sandcastle Making

Have your kids head to the beach with our FAMiLY by JW™ - Little Griffins Kids Club team, along with a wide variety of sand buckets, digging and sculpting tools, molds, and stencils. Based on the age and interest of the kids, the activity is also turned into a competition. The first child to build a castle with 3 different sizes of rooms and a moat wins.

Kite Flying

Often a first time experience, the kids enjoy the feel of the sand between their toes as they run along the shore with the wind in their hair and huge smiles on their faces, while controlling a colorful kite in the blue Maldivian skies above, guided by our FAMiLY by JW™ - Little Griffins Kids Club team.

Beach Olympics

Several activities with something for everyone. These include Sack Races, Pass the Water, Fill the Bucket, Egg and Spoon Races, and more. The aim is to bring kids together to enjoy activities that involve speed, concentration, teamwork, patience, and most of all - fun.

Island Exploration

Kids identify and learn about local vegetation and wildlife while on an interactive nature walk around the island with the FAMiLY by JW™ - Little Griffins Kids Club team.

FAMiLY Pizza Making

This family activity takes place at our Italian restaurant, Fiamma where kids look the part in branded FAMiLY by JW™ aprons and learn proper techniques to make their favorite pizzas with our qualified chefs. Of course, the best part is eating their delicious creations afterward. Parents are also encouraged to get in on the fun.

Pool Session

From guidance on floating to games such as Marco Polo and Treasure Diving, there is a lot of splish-splashing around for everyone, no matter what the swimming level of the kids.

Unleash Your Inner Artist

Drawing inspiration from FAMiLY by JW’s Creativity pillar, we excite our young adventurers about the importance of sustainability in the Maldives. Activities are aimed at providing live examples of recycling, our arts and crafts sessions repurpose commonly discarded items into decorative, functional pieces. Science experiments such as volcanoes and slime also add to the excitement, while FAMiLY Balloon Twisting ensures that the creative fun applies across all ages.
