The winter holidays have just started in France and the headache for parents too.

Because keeping them busy at this time of year is not the easiest. The week is announced rainy so indoor activities will be preferred. Fortunately, there is no shortage of activities in Paris.

I offer a selection of five activities for kids from the little ones and the older ones.

Festival Tout Petits Cinéma 2020

Le Forum des Images offers the 13th edition of the Festival des tout Petits during the February holidays. This Festival  programs workshops of all kinds around the cinema but especially cinema-concert sessions. . These will take place on Wednesdays 12 and 19 and on the weekends of 15 & 16 and 22 & 23 February. So quickly! consult the program and above all book your sessions and workshops.

Discover the Louvre with kids

Pyramide du Louvre

Enjoying Le Louvre with Kids: fun way to visit the Museum

Did you know: The Louvre offers visitor trails to consult and print on all kinds of themes such as Games and toys, A lion hunting, Da Vinci or even Jaz-Y and Beyonce at the Louvre.

The trails should amuse the children because it is a bit like a treasure hunt to go from one work to another, you have to follow the instructions. For each work a small description makes the visit immediately much richer and more interesting for everyone. In order to make your visit more pleasant and to avoid long queues you can always buy your tickets online and install the Affluences application which gives you the estimated waiting time directly.

Walk the Line with L’ATLAS (from archeology to graffiti)

 Musée en Herbe. has always a great programmation and their exhibitions are very playfull, funny and made for kids I really love this place: they offer workshops for little kids and guided visits for teens and adults.

Le Carnaval de Paris : Promenade du bœuf gras

The famous Carnival of Paris traditionally takes place on Sunday before Mardi-gras (February 23) and will start from Place Gambetta to finish on Place de la République. The free theme means everything is possible why not awaken the creativity of your children during a disguise workshop.

Many Parisian museums offer workshops or visits for children but more often you have to book in advance, so promise next time I will anticipate more and you will give lots of new ideas a little before the start of the holidays .

I would love to read your comments and suggestions on this topic.
