Bored? Me? Never! That’s what the kids of Vincennes would tell you, if they had time to stop and talk between all the activities, workshops, tours and sports lessons they have to choose from all year round.
A date for your diary
For the Christmas period, a lovely skating rink is installed outside the Town Hall, much to the delight of children and adults. Young children can enjoy their first experience on the ice in the safety of a dedicated area set aside just for them.
Mini explorers and budding artists will stare in wonder at the African works of art on display at the Galérie Frémeaux, or go in search of the many personalities who have left their mark on this town. Just download the Izi Travel app. The Tourist Office also organises activity workshops around a different theme for each holiday period: street art, architecture, origami, cinema, nature, etc. That should keep them happy!
Your little genius can have fun learning some coding basics with Magic Makers, discover a 3D world with Pause Cocoon, or try video games and 3D printing at the Coeur de Ville multimedia library. There’s something to please every mini-geek out there! Artistic little hands can get busy creating their own jewellery, or making objects out of Fimo modelling clay or, more strangely, slime!
Want to stretch those legs? In summer, head for the Oasis for a game of beach volleyball or tackle the climbing wall on the Town Hall esplanade. And the swimming pool and fun children’s pool at the Dôme are open all year round!
Toys & games galore…
The toy shops are bursting at the seams with ideas. So pop to the thoughtfully well-stocked Sucre d’Orge shop, or the famous Joué Club, or to Ludifolie, a whole Aladdin’s cave of boardgames. Then there’s Le Bois Rieur, unbeatable when it comes to role play!
Fun in the rain…
Or rather, despite the rain! There’s plenty for kids to do here even on a rainy day! An animated film at Le Vincennes cinema, a fun activity at the château, or a creative workshop at the Tourist Office should satisfy their curiosity!
