The biggest challenge for every mum is keeping little brats busy when the school decides to take a break from doing the same!
Thankfully, Dubai has a list of events/activities/family programmes lined up. Here’s a consolidated collage at a glance, reference: https://www.visitdubai.com/en/events/
Well, I wish there were more than 24 hours during such vacations. All my regular tasks that are manageable within the timeframe when they are at school otherwise, either drag on or get forwarded for the next day. Amidst chaos, sorting out squabbles and thinking of what next to keep them occupied with before another WWF brawl starts!
If this wasn’t enough, there’s always this HOLIDAY HOMEWORK bit which none of the two pay heed to, only to sit up at the fag end of the vacation (mostly the night before school resumes).
After all, any assignment that involves research and projects, is more for parents than kids. This recent article, a new rule passed by the Sharjah government on homework and assignments, comes as a relief:
Here are few assignments, projects done in the past month... My elder kiddo continues to amaze with his innovative ideas (check out the "smart watch") and illustrations be it school work or this mother's day card!
HANDY TIP: It's better to retain few things you could reuse, as long as the school returns them, as a modification to further similar projects or for the younger sibling.
They do love the occasional field trip (referring to the article above, a treat for the kids and hole in the pocket for the parents!) ....BELOW: Trip to the Green Planet at City Walk..
JUNGLE RULES ... at BurJuman
Parents can participate too through the SNAP AND WIN contest by clicking away at any of their JUNGLE backdrops and posting them on Instagram to enter into a draw for giveaways.
Here are more interesting family options...
We plan on visiting one such venue today and others gradually, which I hope to keep updating you with.
Hope this post has offered you ideas and options to live through the spring break without having to spend much whilst keeping your child entertained and you relieved :) If it has, do hit the like button and share.
