The mall Sello in Espoo organised on Saturday something they called the Children’s day (Lasten Päivä) programme on the square on the roof of the mall. These kind of events are often a lot of fun, so we agreed to catch up there with some friends. Some of these shopping centre theme days for kids only have limited programme but this one was in mmy opinion quite diverse. It reminded reminded me a lot of the Skiditfestarit earlier (unfortunately this year they will have an entrance fee) where a lot of organisations offered a free trial on the festival to promote their services, mostly children’s hobbies. At Sello there seemed to be more shops and other type of commercial service providers (animal yard, minigolf) offering the activities of the day.
We tried trampolines, test drove scooters and found one we’ll buy (score for Br-lelut!), blew various bubbles, played with Darlene from the Jungle Kids (she is great with kids and teaches also karate and Kindermusik in English. Just my opinion, no money received for expressing it), played a few ball and throwing games, crawled threw tunnels and played minigolf. Our kids really loved playing minigolf, and as there is a track close to our new home that may become our new game for the summer. There would have been other things we were tempted to try but kids seem so tired after our trip to France that we decided to head home while everyone was still in one piece.
