We are referring to an entertaining workshop consists of games and songs organized by Donostia Gazteria that will take place on December 28th and 29th. The mission of this workshop is to reflect on the importance of the game when kids are at this age. Furthermore, different games will be analyzed to identify which ones are the most appropriate and some will be worked on, such as games of hands, games in a circle, mime, skill, songs, etc. Admission is free, although it is necessary to register.

  1. Christmas market

The traditional Christmas Market of the Paseo de Francia has already opened its doors. In 2017, children are once again the undisputed protagonists thanks to the complete calendar of activities at the market. The two busiest places are, undoubtedly, the Ferris wheel (20 meters high) and the toboggan run (which reaches a height of 25 meters), where the little ones will have a great time. But it does not end here because throughout Christmas there will also be morning workshops of all kinds: masks, gastronomy, etc.
