La Tour Eiffel des Enfants

This is fun - for any age. Plan a trip to the Eiffel Tower with children by visiting the children's page on the Tower's website. (What? No plans to go? Why ever not - start now!) There are puzzles, memory games, & you can work out an illumination plan. (See our handwork in the top image.) There are riddles & history lessons. There's also a teacher's guide & a free downloadable pamphlet. If you have photographs from a trip to the Tower, upload them on the site to share with everyone.

Still not convinced this is a good idea? Well, first read this article. And then...if you've not read it, you must read Paris to the Moon by Adam Gopnik.
