Dutch Design Week: Wat te doen met kids? | UrbanMoms.nl

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. (more…)

THE FOREST GNOME TRAIL IN THE AMSTERDAM FOREST by guestblogger 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”! 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! (more…)

[EVENT REPORT] CINEKID FESTIVAL AMSTERDAM tried & tested

Today, I went with Flint to the Cinekid festival at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. A film, TV and media festival for kids from 11 till 18 October 2014. Without expectations, I went there. Also a bit with the thought; if Flint doesn't like it, then I'll be home soon. After all he's not even 4yo. And is this festival suitable for him? But my answer is a resounding yes :). (more…)

BLIJBURG: IBIZA VIBES IN AMSTERDAM 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”! If it's so hot as last week, you have to look for a little refreshment with kids. As an Amsterdam (urban) mom, you have a few options; the park (with small swimming pools), the beach (which you are -without a car- soon sentenced to overcrowded trains to Scheveningen) and... Blijburg! (more…)
