All these days of staying indoors have been quite suffocating, no doubt. For adults and children alike, the news of the lockdown being lifted has come as a breath of fresh air. With safety measures in strict implementation, you can at least go to your favorite places and take your kids to theirs as well. While there are endless things for kids to do in Dubai, TicketsToDo has curated a list of the best places to take your child/ren just so they can have the time of their lives.

With over 80 role-playing activities in more than 60 establishments, this place is a must-visit for your kids. Children will have the opportunity to role-play in various real-life job sectors.

Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo
A visit to the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo is a must! It is not only for entertainment and fun purposes but also to educate. We need to teach kids from a very young age about the various ecosystems and how to preserve our planet. While they can see over 140 species of aquatic animals and the stunning undersea life, you can even take them on a boat ride. The special feature of this boat is that it has a glass bottom and you can get unique views of the tank from beneath your feet. Want your children to miss out on this? Definitely nah!
