Only real kids can feel this magic


Last week me, my co-workers and a class of 11 kids went on a fieldtrip! Just to make sure: I work at an elementary school in one of the earliest grade class so that means I work with the youngest kids.

I’m pretty sure that most of you all loved going on fieldtrips during our childhood at school time because this means no learning for a day and just having a fun exploring time!
I loved all kind of school trips whether it is just a small one to the woods or big annual ones like going to a themepark or a zoo.

And last week we took our kids to a big indoor playground ‘Bambini – play circus’ and it was one happy play time for the kids and for a grown up person like me.
Bambini has ball pits (with ball canon), bouncing castles, slides, endless climbing possibilities through tunnels, ropes, foam walls and all of this made my child-in-me-heart beat harder and harder. I want to play. And we played.

The kids loves to see a teach being playful and lets be honest how fun is it to bury a teach with plastic balls in a ball pit?!

Besides the playing we also ate because playing makes our belly rumble and so we ate French fries with mayonnaise, ‘kaas soufflé’ (typical Dutch but so good this deep fried cheese), popsicle and drank soda.
After that we continued carefree playing.

I hope the children had a great time and I’m sure they do. I self did!     

Vorige week ging ik, mijn collega’s en een klas van 11 kinderen op schoolreis! Nog even voor de zekerheid: ik werk op een basisschool in de jongste groep werk met de jongste kinderen.

Ik ben vrij zeker dat schoolreisjes een van de leukste dingen zijn in onze jonge school jaren, want dit betekent eventjes niks leren voor een dag en alleen maar leuke dingen doen! Ik hield van allerlei soorten schoolreizen of het gewoon een wandelingetje naar het bos is of dé jaarlijkse schoolreis naar een pretpark of dierentuin.

En vorige week hebben we onze kinderen meegenomen naar een ​​grote overdekte speeltuin 'Bambini - speelcircus' voor lekker veel speel plezier voor de kinderen en voor een volwassen persoon als ik.
Bambini heeft ballenbakken (met bal canon), springkussens, glijbanen, eindeloze klimmogelijkheden door tunnels, touwen, schuim muren en dit alles maakte mijn kind-in-mijn-hart harder en harder kloppen. Ik wil spelen. En dat we speelden.

Daarnaast zien de kinderen graag een juf heerlijk meedoen en laten we eerlijk zijn: hoe leuk is het om een ​​juf met plastic ballen in een ballenbak te begraven?!

Van al het spelen raakte we honger en dus hebben we ons buikje gevuld met lekkers en aten we friet met mayonaise, kaas soufflé (of kroket of frikadel), raket ijsje en dronken we siroop. Daarna zijn we weer zorgeloos gaan spelen.

Ik hoop dat de kinderen een geweldige tijd van hun leven hebben gehad en ik weet zeker dat ze dat hadden. Ik in ieder geval wel!

  1. So nice to hear and see more about your job Mei! Hooray for working with kids. :)

  2. Looks like a lot of fun! I always loved going on field trips as well!

  3. I can't remember the last time I went on a field trip! Working with kids is awesome, because kids somehow always bring out the kid in you, which is a nice change of pace from the rest of society who is always telling us to grow up :P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  4. How fun!! I know you were working, but it's nice to go back to childhood now and again ;) I also work with children (not a school teacher though) and I just love the pure and simple delight they find in the little things. xx

    ps I am finally catching up on blogs, bear with me!
