First off was an interactive folk music show by the trolls Skrubiluttan and Skrubiluttan at Lilla Luckan (were we’ve been many times before for various cultural events for children in Swedish). My boy helped the musicians by playing along with his ukulele (kids were encouraged to do that but he was the only one taking the job seriously). Kids loved the show even though us mothers were a bit sceptical about how they’d react to folk music.
The show wasn’t free, 5e/child and 13,50e/adult (always buy via lippu.fi). But I think it was good value for the money. As always at Saftsalongen, the Saturday kids programmes at Lilla Luckan, kids got juice (saft), biscuits, carrots, cherry tomatoes and mandarins. I love the fact they mostly offer a healthy snack!
After the snack we hoped to get a cuppa enjoying the bright spring sun in the Esplanade park. The kiosks hadn’t opened yet, neither had the stage were there usually in the summer is often free programme, but instead we found out it was the World Circus Day. More and more artists joined the crowd and they all seemed to have a lot of fun while showing their skills for our astonished kids (and others) for free!
On the way home we passed the Ateneum. Anyone who knows what this star made out of shirts in the tree is therefore?
