de Veldkeuken at estate Amelisweerd. And afterwards joined a guided mushroom-tour through the woods. The girls and their cousins stayed close to the IVN-guide, who told them, and us, a lot about the importance of fungi in ecosystems. A perfect sunny (birth)day!
Digivita. She took a friend and they came back very enthusiastic. "It was fun and not difficult at all". They got to meet robot Nao, see Oculus rift and worked with Mindstorms. But the girls' favourite activity was building a piano with play dough, mandarins, a banana and the Makey makey-kit. I'll have to tell Sinterklaas that N would appreciate a kit like that.
these pictures, I used the half hour, before the kids came out of school, to make these.
model of the bag. Made a design and gave it to her mother. And since mom certainly wants to stimulate all creativity, she quickly followed up on the instructions. When finished the girl was happy and proud, in spite of the jeans being darker than she had meant.
Circular (similar for android: Spherify). Very funny and beautiful results.
classic Dutch apple pie is another option, but not every day. Lots of butter, quite some sugar. The cake above is a good alternative. The spices nicely disguise the lack of sugar. The girls loved it. Or this moist cake. It's sweeter than the other one. Looking for apple-recipes I also found a recipe for making apple cider vinegar. A good way to use the peels from the apples for the cake. I like the idea of using every part. We'll have to wait six weeks before we can try and see how good it is. Do you have another good apple-recipe?
my daughters mermaid-fabric. Although mom had sensed things, she hadn't expected this and was truly surprised. We enjoyed the good company, food and conversations.
lecture at the Natuurhistorisch Museum, we went to the neighbouring Kunsthal to see the Keith Haring exhibition. I'm not a fan of pop-art, but when you happen to be close on the exhibitions opening day you shouldn't let go of that chance. Maybe seeing the actual works can change your opinion. Didn't happen, but was good to see. Afterwards we drove to the beach to enjoy a lovely sunny afternoon. A well-spent sunday!
