A story for your child while in Paris?

Want to find a place to make a indoor activity with your 3 to 5 child while in Paris?

The American Library Story Hour could be a good opportunity to do so : just choose between the 10:30 or the 2:30 session and drop-in – no registration needed.

Every Wednesday, join Story Hour for 3-5 year-old children: “we read some great stories at the Library, sing some silly songs and make an easy craft project to take home and keep. Feel free to dress up in theme or bring along something to share with the group” says the American Library website….sounds good!

Fee apply for non-member (or get a membership card if you plan to come back to the Library while in Paris). Children must be accompanied by an adult.

[family-friendly burgers] Loulou friendly diner – Paris 5th Saint Germain

Boulevard St Germain, 2 steps from St Michel, a welcoming “diner” that is fully  baby-friendly.
High chair and changing table available will make this “burger” stop easier with baby. Moreover, the main room is large and you’ll be able to keep baby in his stroller .

The menu ? burgers of course (tested for you the Blue Cheeseburger) and other meals. For dessert, I can recommend the  NY Cheesecake (miam ! as we say in French 😉 ).

[cafe] Le Jardin du Petit Palais – Paris 8th

Even if this café is not specifically a “baby-friendly” place, it pleased us particularly by its tranquillity and its location…a pretty good address for a break while walking between la Concorde and les Champs-Elysées.

Petit Palais is the Art Museum of city of Paris. In a superb building, it hosts collections from Antiquity till begining of 20th century…and as (almost) all museums managed by the City of Paris, its entrance to permanent collections is free (entrance fees for temporary exhibitions and workshops).

Located in the heart of the building, the café Le Jardin du Petit Palais offers a large room soberly decorated.
Its menu shows drinks, light meals and snacks all day long. And, depending on the weather, you’ll be able to enjoy a table in the garden. The café does not have high chairs (but there is room enough to install the stroller next to you). No baby changing facilities neither in the museum (only a “large table” with no changing mat in the Ladies restroom on floor 0…).
