Description and organisation

Each counsellor creates their own flavored water and puts it on a table. Each child receives a glass, a piece of paper and a pencil. The kids walk around from table to table, tasting all the varieties of water and score them between 1 and 10 (according to criteria already established by the group). At the end, the animators collect the papers and tabulate the scores.
