The Summer’s in Dubai are severe and we recommend to do most of the things indoor.
So what do we do? Do we hibernate in our apartment and let the kids have unlimited screen time?
Well, not really!
We’re not saying to ditch the SPF, but these indoor activities for kids certainly deserve to be on your summer bucket list. After a pool or beach visit, the family is going to want to have other entertainment options considering the temperatures soar to 45 C during the day.
So explore these best indoor activities for kids during Dubai Summers!
