Children's groups : Awaken your senses! Workshop around the cheeses of Savoie Abondance


Abondance (74360)
Average length : 2h
Animals not allowed
Activity on request

Savoy cheeses have many fans, but can they recognise them "blind"?
After a presentation on the nutritional value of milk, the different cheese types and the different stages of production, children will rediscover Savoie cheeses by focusing on their 5 senses and sharing their impressions. An approach that awakens all the senses!

Topics covered: the 5 senses, each illustrated by an activity involving three of Savoie's label cheeses: Abondance, Tomme de Savoie and Reblochon. The workshop ends with a tasting of these cheeses, of course!

Organisation: explanations and discussions about the senses with the mediator, followed by individual activities.
