Carnival


Carnival has started here in Holland, and the girls were celebrating the carnival at school Friday afternoon, which meant that everybody had to dress up and wear a costume. 

The girls love to dress up and as I showed you in the beginning of the week Alieke were going to be a beautiful colorful bird. Emmelie wanted to be Pippi Langstrømpe and I think that it was the perfect choice for here. She could be Pippi for real if we let her. :-)

The pictures of the girls are not the best. We had to do it quick and fast in their lunch break and later I didn’t get a chance.  I want to do them over again one of the next following days if I get the time. A costume like the bird needs beautiful pictures as well I think. I (by the way) just sign in for a photo workshop in March. Portrait and studio pictures! Then I hope to get some good tips and tricks for here at home. But for now you can get an impression of how they looked like for carnival.








After school I promise them that they each could bring two girlfriends with them home for Fastelavnsboller (Danish carnival rolls). I wanted to give my girls something from the Danish traditions of carnival and promise the girls that I would make a little carnival’s party for them, where they could make something as well for carnival as we know in Denmark. 

The girls were very happy about the idea and Friday after school 6 (Dutch) dressed up girls were having a great time making Danish ‘Fastelavnsris’. Here is what they made.

We used paper, candy, bracelets, popcorn and lollypops for decorating the branches and the result was beautiful and simple.Have a look!

  1. Hvor er det blevet fedt. Jeg har fulgt med i fuglekostumerne i blogland og har ventet på at se det på med nederdel til. Det er lidt af et kunstværk!

  4. Hvor er det dejligt at du giver dem noget af de danske traditioner også. Vingerne til de smukke fugle er fantastiske men jeg har ikke set den matchene nederdel før. Den er så fin.

  5. Nederdelen fandt jeg selv på at lave til vingerne. Jeg syntes ligesom at der manglede noget til at gøre den helt færdig. Tak for alle dine søde kommentarer
