Impossible, you say? Not at all. Just carry on reading! Here are a few cultural sporting and leisure options to enjoy as a family over these days of get-togethers.

1. Museums a plenty

From the last day of term to Three Kings' Day, the museums in the regions of Barcelona offer all sorts of exhibitions, workshops and shows for families with children.

At the Catalonia Science and Technology Museum, in Terrassa, you can hear a story about the importance of water.

2. Christmas Fun Parks

Christmas fun parks are another great option for families over the holiday period. In the Baix Llobregat region you're sure to enjoy the Children's Fair in Cornellà, a classic event now in its 23rd year, where you can take part in recycling workshops, ride on the attractions and play team sports in fun tournaments open to everybody. Or make your way to the Badanadal in Manlleu, an ice paradise with all sorts of activities to suit all ages.

4. Letter to the Three Kings
