Loads of fun at waterparks
It is quite the task to get children away from electronic gadgets like smartphones, TVs and iPads. The best way to deal with the situation would be help them get more enjoyable entertainment — outdoors. With the weather cooling off, children are keen to step outside and what better place to take them than to waterparks?
While outdoor sports make them sweat, water activities fill them with energy and revitalise the soul. Tapping into the potential, and to double the fun for children, aquatic clubs offer swimming coaching, ride-races, expert slide tips and learning activities like compact jumps, freezetags, diving and recovery, brick retrieval, item collection etc.
Playing in water is fun and when there are other kids around, it gets even better. Watersports releases energy, develops motor skills in children, builds their communication abilities while stimulating creativity and imagination. It increases children’s ability to concentrate and also encourages critical social skills like cooperation and sharing. Young ones also learn to work with other children.
“I have realised that kids receive numerous health and cognitive benefits while they frolic in the water. In fact, with more children being drawn to live sedentary lives at earlier ages, such water activities are a great way to counter the unhealthy effects of busy schedules and inactive lifestyles, said an excited parent at a water park in Abu Dhabi.
“I have witnessed how waterplay can help children develop healthy skills and habits that will benefit them. Interacting with so many kids, understanding the instruction of trainers and following them helps to form positive communication and cooperation abilities,” he said.
“Children often play with wood, dirt, sand and rocks, but water offers them endless opportunities for physical experiments and discovery,” said another parent.
While water rides offers many benefits for children, it is also important not to leave them unattended during their time there. Most water theme parks in the UAE have trainers who always keep an eye out for your kids. They are in safe hands.
