At the tourist office, we had a sudden desire for summer. Like a need for discoveries and exploration with the arrival of sunny days. And what better place for a trip to an unknown land than the Bandol savannah? For these spring holidays, embark with us into the sunny world of Kirikou!

Dans la savane : jeu pour les enfants à Pâques à Bandol

Do you know Kirikou?

Notice to parents in their thirties and forties: you must have already seen this beautiful cartoon! The story ofa little boy full of good will and above all very courageous. Besides, it’s not us who say it, but his song “Kirikou is not big, but he is valiant”. On his way, he had the opportunity to cross paths with a terrible witch and wild beasts...

It is into this universe still unknown to Var children that we wish to take your little ones April and in May. And this, in order to liven up their well-deserved spring break a little more. The program includes treasure hunts, puzzles, workshops and of course, lots of gifts!

Our games for spring break in bandol

4 treasure hunts throughout the city

In the savannah, Kirikou's adventures lead him to encounter in turn a black hyena, an imposing buffalo, an immense giraffe, as well as a formidable poisonous plant. It is exactly this journey, symbolized by 4 treasure hunts, which will the children borrow!

To play, they will need follow in the footsteps of each of these crazy people. How ? Based on a plan carefully prepared by the tourist office team. At the said places, toddlers will have to open their eyes wide, search up, down, south, north, in all directions, in order to find the answers to the questions asked in our brochure.

When they have collected the precious elements, all they have to do is come back and see us at the tourist office to get their surprise!

Bonus : one of the four treasure hunts takes place among the merchants. So parents can also treat themselves to a little shopping session!
