Seeing friends, sport, playdates and swimming – just some of the things children are missing

What kids in the UAE are looking forward to when life gets back to normal

We are all missing things we can’t do at the moment. So finally geting to do those things will be incredible.

But kids have it even harder, even though they may not talk about it as often. Schools have been closed since early March and they are all missing their friends and their teachers.

We find out what kids in the UAE are missing most and what they can’t wait to do when life gets back to normal.
