Invented by Finnish company Lahden Paikka in 1996, in the southern Päijät-Häme region. 

Mölkky is an outdoor Finnish game of skill that's going from strength to strength, combining strategy and conviviality.

There are no age or player limits. 

The water battle

children's water fight

The weather forecast calls for bright, sunny skies followed by a temperature that's just right to avoid sunstroke?  

Have a water fight!

It's the game par excellence where the rules set up at the start of the battle disappear when you get wet... Weird ^^

With water bottles, water pistols or water buckets, the main thing is to keep cool and have fun at the same time!


Family gardening
Gardening allows children to discover nature and learn how plants grow.
Gardening also gives children a sense of responsibility, teaches them patience and introduces them to the life cycle of plants in a fun and educational way.


Family soccer

Soccer! The world's most popular sport. 

A great way to spend time outdoors is to play with a soccer ball. 

Running, shooting, passing, receiving... A good dose of energy, then a good rest.

La Pétanque

Hey Marcel, are you shooting or pointing? 

Perfect for a convivial moment with family and friends.
