Exciting, educational and oh so sweet – an extended visit to Explorit Kindercity
We couldn’t have chosen a better Saturday afternoon for our visit to Kindercity. The weather was grey, cold and rainy when we entered the not too overcrowded Kindercity around noon.
Beforehand, we booked an hour at the Chocolate Workshop for our daughters. Booking an activity in one of the workshops was very easy, we just had to make one phone call. On the Kindercity website, visitors find all kinds of workshop offers, such as the Bread Workshop, Craft Workshop, Dinosaur Workshop or Car Workshop. The offers change regularly.
Already in the entrance hall, a huge machine got our girls excited. It blew coffee cups into the air and nearly led them to forget the upcoming chocolate adventure. They could even build their own flying objects and let them hover in the air. Because, doing it yourself is so much more fun!
On their way to the workshop, they quickly let little gondolas rise into the crown of the tree, whispered their secrets to each other through a long pipe and hid in the restaurant’s playhouse. We were only able to lure them out with the promise of the impending chocolate workshop.
Choco Pops and quizzes at the Chocolate Workshop
For one hour, the two of them had fun at the Chocolate Workshop. They eagerly produced choco pops, solved quizzes and created their own labels. In the meantime, we watched them having fun through the large windows of the café while enjoying a well-deserved coffee.
With sparkling eyes and a bag filled with chocolate (which I quickly stowed away in my bag), we went to the next Kindercity adventure! The Knowledge Trails were waiting!
Already at the turnstile, the kids were eager to experience and discover
We started at the Beetle Lane and could hardly follow our girls. They were so excited, they wanted to see and experience everything at once.
They disappeared somewhere and reappeared at the other end of the room. They danced, jumped, hopped, made frogs croak. They measured how tall and heavy they are and discovered that a fly sees the world completely differently than we do (in tiles). Together, they counted all the colors of the rainbow and fished rubber duckies out of the real-water river. (Hot tip: Bring some extra clothes and socks with you and keep an eye on the kids).
How great, I thought, Kindercity is fabulous. Finally, an outing with the kids that meets everyone’s needs, where nobody complains that it’s too boring, too hard or too complicated.
