Play Mensa is a hub of games and activities that introduce the following topics:
- Short chain: let children discover where the raw materials that are used every day for preparing meals come from;
- Organization: who is in charge of defining the menu? How is it structured? Who cooks the meals that every day end up on the tables of the children of the Municipality of Florence?
- Variety and curiosity of the dishes: convey the importance of tasting through games. Make it clear to children that it is important to always taste all the dishes on the menu.
- Waste: in every single game and activity the message to be communicated is that every crumb has value and nothing should be wasted, even and especially at school!
