If you’re looking for some fun and exciting things for your children to do, the UAE is definitely one of the best places you could be. There are plenty of locations and activities here that children of all ages can enjoy. Are you looking for some fresh ideas of things to do for kids? Do you want to pack up your itinerary with back to back fun? It’s time to take out your planner and put a to-do list together as we explore 15 activities for kids in the UAE.
Even adults will be tempted to join the fun at the 100 interconnected trampolines at Bounce Dubai. A playground entirely out of trampolines? Yes please. Younger children can enjoy the Mini Bounce area while older children can bounce off the wall and throw some basketball hoops. Dubai’s biggest indoor trampoline park is the perfect place to take kids with just a little too much energy.
Most children love animals, and if yours do too then a visit to Dubai Safari is almost mandatory. The safari park has over 2,000 animals of 200 different species. Some exhibits are drive-through, giving you the experience of a real African safari, but you can also walk around the African and Asian villages by foot to see animals including crocodiles, hippos, tigers, lions, chimpanzees and much more.
Legoland Amusement Park and Waterpark has some of the best activities to do in the UAE for kids. Both the amusement park and waterpark feature Lego creations and give your children an opportunity to explore their favourite toys in a way they’ve never experienced before. This location is most suited for children between the ages of two and twelve years old.
Kids love to play around and pretend to be doctors, firemen, pilots and other adult professions. Why not indulge them and let them take their imagination to completely new levels? Kidzania in Dubai is a unique place where small children can pretend to be adults and act out all these professions in an environment that looks like the adult world, but sized down for small children.
One of the best kids activities in the UAE is to take your little ones scuba diving. Depending on age they might just be snorkelling on the surface or they might be able to learn to dive deeper, but it will all be done in a safe environment if you choose a Dubai diving club with appropriate groups and classes. In the UAE, there are plenty of coral reefs and marine life for your kids to explore underwater.
