May 24, 2022 Posted by: Kidzapp Team Kids Activities

Looking for something to do in Abu Dhabi with your kids but don't want to break the bank? Don't worry - we've compiled a list of fun things to do in the capital that are all AED 50 or less, from gorgeous nature spots to exciting indoor play.

Droplets by Caboodle

This interactive play area for babies and young children is designed to inspire hands-on interaction and imagination while having fun in a “water-inspired” environment. Your kiddos will love exploring the sensory rooms where they can splash away on the Water Table (bring extra clothes!) or take a trip to outer space in the UV lit Glow Room! Or, they can get active in the jungle gym, the ball pit “lake”, or the unique pirate ship for some pretend play. 

There’s even a quiet room for babies to nap, alongside a lovely place to relax with a hot beverage within “hugs reach” of your little ones.
