WITH YOUR FEET IN THE SAND IN THE HEART OF AMSTERDAM by Evelien

Evelien is mommy of Piet (2010), Tycho (2012) and pregnant with her third child (a girl!) and lives with pleasure with husband and kids in Amsterdam. She loves to discover places where the kids can freely move and play and where it looks and feels good for the parent(s) as well, because that can be a challenge sometimes. Luckily there are increasingly more places where this combination is a match. In the coming blogs she will share her findings with you guys.

Strand Zuid (Beach South) has been on the edge of the Beatrixpark and the RAI for a couple of years. On the waterfront, so you can go there by boat too. Every year they change (read: improve) it! Since May 1st they’re open for the Summer season and recently I went there with Piet and Tycho, a bit insecure though if it would be okay with kids. To be sure I brought some spades and buckets, knowing there would at least be sand. Continue reading

GO OUT IN THE MAY HOLIDAYS: 5 TIPS IN ROTTERDAM

[Advertorial] The may holiday is an ideal time to go out with the kids. Get outside, breath in the fresh air and do some nice and active things. I prefer to do that with my boys or with some friends, who bring their kids as wel. We usually choose a place where all the kids can let off some steam and we catch up in peace. Continue reading

Winter, spring, summer or fall, sometimes it’s just hard to think of something ‘different’ to do with the kids inside. And to go to Ballorig every week… Although Piet and Tycho love that, so once in a while you can find me there too. Continue reading

WITH THE KIDS TO A PERFORMANCE OF WONDERLAND by guest blogger Myra

Let me introduce myself; my name is Myra, I’m a lawyer and mother of twe sons Just (2010) and Quinten (2012). I live in Amsterdam, with my boyfriend and two kids. Regularly I go out with the boys on Friday, my day off. Of course my boys are super sweet ;) but also real boys who make a lot of noise, knocking over things, making a mess and want to run around. So you can assume that wherever I’m going and whatever I’m doing is in any case “kids proof”!

A few weeks ago, I went to a play of Wonderland with the boys and the two daughters of a good friend. This play was in the Buiksloterkerk (North), a real cool spot to go to a play some time! But the makers of Wonderland have plays in several spots. Continue reading

DUTCH DESIGN WEEK PART 1 – What to do with kids during the DDW?

Yesterday, we were with our group of ‘kids bloggers’ in Eindhoven (from left to right; Marieke from Pimpelwit, Esther from Babyccino, Bettina from Citymom, myself, Anouk and Hanneke from Petit Lou, Mieke from Kidsroomzuid, initiator Lonneke from Bubblemint, Vicky from Circusbeer and Esmee from April and May mini). The plan was to blog live from the DDW Bloggerscafe. In the morning we all went into the DDW to spot the coolest expo’s and kids designs, to gather later at the bloggerstable to blog. But we had such a great time, that we didn’t blog at all ;) But here are our suggestions, if ou want to visit the Dutch Design Week with kids. Continue reading

THE FOREST GNOME TRAIL IN THE AMSTERDAM FOREST by guestblogger Myra

Fall is my favorite time of year to go into the forest. Fresh breeze, beautiful colors and often a lovely sun. The boys love it too; a lot of space and sticks to play with everywhere and tree-trunks to climb. Getting dirty and warming up with a hot chocolate at home, love it! Continue reading
