Make the most of your child's summer with KHDA's fun online challenge!
School's officially out… and it feels amazing! Unfortunately unlike the years before, the holidays may not feel all that different from the previous months of distance learning and it may become a challenge for UAE parents to keep their little ones busy.
To make sure your kids don't waste a single second of summer vacation fun, the Knowledge and Development Authority (KHDA) announced a new and exciting boredom-busting social media challenge.
#8WeekStreak is a summer challenge for kids, parents, and teachers with fun things to do every day during the summer holidays.
For each week starting from July 5 to August 29, you'll find themed challenges such as music, cooking, science, fitness, invention, as well as other wonderful activities and chances for skill development.
How can we participate in #8WeekStreak?
To participate in the social media challenge, mums simply need to snap some photos or shoot a video of themselves and their child taking part in the weekly challenges. These must then be posted on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with #8WeekStreak and #NewDaysNewWays.
"...not TikTok though cos we're boomers & value our attention span," said the official tweet.
Each week, four videos or photos will be shortlisted by KHDA and users will vote for a winner. Participants are invited to help their kids enjoy and explore the themes, and that it "doesn't have to be perfect, this isn't Shark Tank."
KHDA added: "Show us what you can do Dubai!"
