Jeux Pour Tous

The Mairie has organised lots of school holiday activities for children. We missed the Halloween themed scary stories at the library, and the giant Cluedo too, because some of the kids were sick. But yesterday everyone was well and we went to the games afternoon down at the salle des fêtes. There was "Puissance Quatre" (Connect Four), les "Dames Chinoises" (Chinese Checkers), toys for little kids, dolls, and lots of fun things to do on a cold and rainy afternoon.
Here are some photos so you can see for yourself.

Bonnie and Hugh playing with a little farm set.

Hugh enjoying the tunnel.

Sophie playing a game that slides tokens using an elastic launcher.

Watching Odette play against Amandine.

The girls looking a little bit intimidated by all the cake and soft drinks.

But wouldn't you just know what was the best fun?? After all the toys and games were packed away, the beautiful shiny slippery floor was great for sliding on! And doing handstands and cartwheels.

Bonnie doing a cartwheel after Odette has done one.

Hugh being dragged along by his friend Gabriel.

Woo-hoo! Everyone slide...

There were a dozen happy screaming children running around having a ball while the adults took the things back to the mairie. And once again, one very BIG kid!

Nice performance, Eric!!
