Parents who shop for AED 200 can drop their kids off at City Centre Deira’s supervised interactive pop up zone and go about their daily shopping and leisure activities care-free. The area will have fun games, science edutainment and creative workshops to challenge their physical skills and boost their mental abilities. Children with an artistic flair can join the art and craft sessions and drawing lessons, while the musically inclined can practice their skills during the music workshops.
In the LAB sessions, children will understand the concept of matter in its three states through visual and tactile experiences. Chemistry will no longer be boring with students being introduced to different chemical reactions in exciting, practical classes.
Children who want to shake a leg can participate in the Zumba and hip-hop sessions or learn self-awareness and calming techniques with yoga at the pop up. They can also enjoy face painting, circus workshops, and slime and bouncy ball making at the camp.
Young visitors to the mall will be entertained by the energetic Zak & Zia, Magic Planet’s popular characters that have amazing powers and shape-shift. Children can interact with the adorable robots and take pictures with them daily during the spring break.
