Let's draw our T-shirt
After potions and dragons, now it's up to the inventiveness of each child. In the magical setting of the castle, after listening to the story of the adventures of Barbarossa, children will be guided to the discovery of colors and then make a beautiful T-shirt. Only if it is cheerful enough will Barbarossa let them pass through the gate!

So come on, with various materials and a lot of imagination, children will have to build the right equipment with which to assault the tower. But to get in, they will have to pass one last, very important test!
