Educational game for children

A small notebook gives children a basic information and invites them to answer questions appealing to their sense. Four subjects are approached: the building of the Maison du Roi, the development of the City, the water in Brussels and Manneken-Pis. The notebook exists in 2 versions: for 9-12 year-olds and for 6-8 year-olds.

For the grown-up guides, a notebook supplies the additional information allowing to deepen the subject. A map with route also allows them to organize a stroll in the city center.
