“I don’t know what to do!” » or “What do we do?” » Two sentences that reviennent frequently when we don't know what to offer as an activity and it is not always easy tokeep the kids busy on Wednesdays, week ends or during School vacation. So we decided to share some of our ideas with you so that you always have something to say to your children!

A cultural Wednesday afternoon

It is not forbidden to learn on days when there is no school! And it's often while having fun that we learn new things.

Many museums interest young audiences such as the Macaron and Almond Museum à Montmorillon which showcases the history and making of this delicious local cupcake. You can taste it on site! In the south of the Vienne near Civray, Cormenier in Champniers traces the life of a child at the beginning of the XNUMXth centurynd century. You explore several reconstructed rooms and observe the automatons larger than life in the atmosphere of yesteryear.

In the city center of Poitiers, it is the Holy Cross Museum which regularly offers workshops for young people. The history and art of Poitou will no longer have any secrets for them!
