Outdoor must-sees for children under 6 years old

Whether it's sunny or chilly, pony rides are always popular with toddlers. Punch has not aged a bit and still amuses (or scares) children. Most of Guignol's shows are programmed in small theaters (you can go no matter the weather). And as soon as spring arrives or when the weather is very nice, some Guignol shows are performed outdoors. Going to see animals remains one of their favorite outings: the zoological park of Paris, the Menagerie of the Jardin des Plantes or more original the breeding of dairy elders located in the 94.

Fun, original or cultural outdoor activities

Pick-your-own farms usually open their doors to the public in the spring. It is an activity that attracts more and more families.

Must-haves at the toddler shelter

Very nice also with a baby or a toddler (always indoor)
