So we have hit the October half-term, and as parents we are scrambling to find ways to keep kids entertained and keep ourselves sane!
Working parents need to find days to fill up their kids’ time and stay-at-home parents (who often have an even more difficult job than working parents), need to keep their kids occupied so that they burn off their endless energy.
Here are some of our top tips of things to do with your kids over the October half-term break:
Plan A Fun Day Out
Enjoy the weather and visit the recently opened Dinosaur Park at Dubai Garden Glow in the morning where you can walk around and enjoy being out while surrounded by the Dinosaurs and the greenery of the park.
Enjoy lunch at Tony Romas on Sheikh Zayed Road (they have a soft play area) and then head to the Splash
water park at Kite beach to enjoy the afternoon splashing around in the water!
And the best thing about these two activities is that they are price friendly at just AED 50 per ticket. We can guarantee that your kids will be tired at the end of the day and you will also have had a fun day out!
Edutainment For Kids
If you want to stimulate your kids and entertain them at the same time, send them to OliOli in Al Quoz.
Not only is it a fantastic place with all sorts of cool rooms and fun things to entertain and educate your kids, they have recently launched a S.T.E.A.Mania Program which will make sure to trigger your child’s curiosity and introduce them to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
A Family Daycation
