School’s closed for the summer break, and it looks like it’s going to be days of endless fun. But keeping your little ones occupied on long summer days can get a tad wearisome sometimes.
Thankfully Dubai has no dearth of activities for kids. Dubai’s favourite malls like the City Centre Malls and the Mall of the Emirates have a variety of entertainment to keep your children occupied.
Dubai Community Theatre & Arts Centre (DUCTAC) is a beehive of activity during the summer. Established with an aim to promote cultural and creative activities in Dubai, it hosts a whole range of programs and events from dramas to workshops which appeal to Dubai’s multicultural society. Located on the second floor of the Mall of the Emirates, spread over a massive 7,424 m sq, DUCTAC is one of the first modern, community centres for creative expression in the Middle East.
Summer Camps at DUCTAC
DUCTAC is packed with activities for kids this summer. From art workshops to plays and dramas for children, summer days need not be boring anymore. Let your child discover his inner Rembrandt or Monet, with the DUCTAC art camp for summer 2016. See them revel in a world of hues and colours as they explore artistic styles over the eras and recreate the masterpieces of world-famous artists. They even will be allowed to hone their creative writing skills, have fun with origami, crafts and much more.
Girls who love to dress up and pretend they are fashionistas will adore the Fashion Design Sizzling Summer Camp for Girls. Conducted by the famous fashion designer Lynn Nolan, the course will take your little girls through fashion design, drawing and stitching.
Kids’ Entertainment at DUCTAC
That’s not all; DUCTAC will host some of the top international hits especially for children. The Harry Potter parody is a hilarious, rip-roaring condensation of the 7 Harry Potter novels and is a great entertainer for the entire family.
DUCTAC also brings the legendary Gruffalo to stage with the Gruffalo’s Child. All about song and dance with a few screams thrown in, the show is “scary fun” for kids aged three years and up.
Step into for a whole world of fun rides, games and more. From the Robocoaster, a hair-raising 2-person ride to the first 4-D theatre in the UAE, Magic Planet lives up to its promise to keep your kids entertained.
The Mall of the Emirates is also the home of Ski Dubai, a ski resort right in the middle of Dubai. Say hello to the Ski Dubai penguins or take the Snow Bullet ride above the snowy wonderland.
You can end the day by catching the latest blockbuster at VOX Cinema. Equipped with the latest technology like big screens, plush seats and surround sound, viewing movies does not get better than this.
With so many activities to choose from, a day at the Mall of the Emirates will be a day spent well.
