Use rugs, cushions and stools to make the path more or less difficult based on the age of the children. From the bursting of balloons to basketball hoops up to blindfolded trials, you can come up with the most diverse activities together. But remember to always keep safety in mindof the little ones (and your furniture!). Thinking bigger, one might even think about designing a climbing wall.

Children like to see the family reunited. Then everyone around the table to challenge each other in the mime competition or in party games . At the end of the day you are allowed to turn on the TV and watch a classic for the whole family. Strictly with the lights off and popcorn , just as if you were at the cinema while it continues to rain outside and you stay, all together, pleasantly warm.
