“This educational kit is in perpetual evolution; we regularly add new activities. But our dearest hope is to see it evolve on its own from exchanges between users that enrich it with their commentaries, testimonies and personal propositions, but also by uploading the best group creations.”

– Yves Daoust, fonofone creator

Four principal categories of activities and two special categories!
