The Paris Zoo is making the most of Christmas and offering some rather out-of-the-ordinary events!

Every day from 23rd-31st December, from 10am-5pm, you can:

– prepare the gifts for the animals while discovering their special diets, then watch as the zoo attendants give the food/gifts.

– take part in Father Xmas’ animal-themed KAPLA workshop.

– try to win prizes on the zoo’s Instagram page. You’ll have to be subscribed to their page, tag two friends and (correctly) answer the question of the day. #whatapalava

– and perhaps you’ll even bump into Father Christmas himself!
