Fun things to do with kids
Over the 3 days, the Kids' Zone will be full of interactive and fun activities for kids:
- Group Crafts & Festival themed crafts
- Recycling crafts, for example, bring along an old T-shirt and vamp and sparkle it up for your Summer or old socks and make it into a cute animal
- Beauty Corner including sparkly faces, temporary tattoos, nails and hair
- There will be a fun children's story corner, where they help the storyteller with actions, words and songs that bring the story to life!
- Group games and activities, treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, sing songs and the Hokey Cokey!
- Play corner will be available for those wanting to make their own make-believe and make new friends!
Also being provided by La Petite Folie Cafe and Oui-Care is their yummy ice cream machine, so you can buy soft scoop ice creams in a cone or a pot and decorate them with lots of fun colourful toppings!
Come and join us in the Kids' Zone and make it a family CHAMFEST festival to remember. All crafts made are yours to keep as a souvenir of your festival experience in Chamonix.
Some of the fun activities for kids may have a small charge, so bring along your pocket money or your Dad's wallet!
Giant bouncy caterpillar
The soft play specialists from Sallanches will be at CHAMFEST with their giant bouncy caterpillar - 10m of fun for kids of 3-12 years. 3€ will buy you 3 passages, getting you a total of 30m of bouncy fun!
Fun activities for kids
The Chamonix All Year team will have even more entertainment for kids on their stand. There will be larger-than-life games that everyone can play (think massive games of Connect 4 and more!). Don't miss the chance to take part in the raffle to win some amazing prizes and raise money for our chosen CHAMFEST charities too. Peppa Pig will pop along on the Saturday and Sunday mornings - see details above.
The Chamonix All Year stand will also host a hilarious photo booth - come along with friends and family, get kitted up with our props and take a fancy dress photo as a souvenir of the day that you can share online.
Kids' adventure activities
The Chamonix Guide Company, the Compagnie des Guides, will be hosting some adventure activities for kids all weekend at CHAMFEST, ensuring that there are plenty of fun things to do with kids.
Race your friends to the top of the inflatable climbing wall and enjoy an introduction to the joys of climbing. Or team up with your family to take part in a challenging treasure hunt, and answer the riddles set by the guides to find the hidden treasure.
Climbing is available from 10am to 6pm each day, with all safety equipment provided. Treasure hunts will take place on Friday afternoon from 2.30-5.30pm and all day on Saturday and Sunday 10.30am to 5.30pm.
