Expo City Dubai is buzzing with excitement this holiday season, and the enchanting activations within Winter City will definitely steal the show!

5 magical experiences are not just about fun and festivities – they’re about embracing sustainability in a whole new way.

5. Santa’s House: Step into Santa’s house to see how sustainability meets holiday magic. It’s all about reusing, reducing, and recycling. Santa’s home has repurposed decorations and energy-efficient lighting because even at the North Pole, they care about the environment.

4. Frosty’s Farmhouse: Learn all about farm-to-table living, composting, and creating reindeer food. Elves will lead engaging workshops so children can have mini green fingers! The youngsters will get to dive into gardening activities and create arts and crafts using veggies.

3. Santa’s Toy Factory: The kiddos will also get into STEM-based sustainable toy-making! Kids will get the chance to create their awesome eco-conscious toys like wind turbines and solar-powered cars, using recycled materials.

2. Letters To Santa: All the kids write letters to Santa, but this carefully curated workshop will teach them the importance of sustainability while crafting letters using recycled paper, eco-friendly markers, and earth-conscious decor.

1. Mrs. Claus’ Bakery: It’s all about baking and learning at Mrs. Claus’ Bakery! Kids will get to decorate cookies shaped like polar bears, penguins, and polar ice caps while receiving tips from elves on combatting climate change at home.
