Get into ya Clogs!
Klompenkunst - Turn the kids into artists
Would Opa en Oma have some old clogs lying around? Let the grandkids ask them if you can turn it into an artwork.
Or buy a clog or two at your local Dutch shop. Or make a fake one :-).
Bring them along to the Big Dutch Day Out, and they will get judged, and go into the Klompenkunst Competitie to win Prizes. More info: Klompenkunst-ClogArt-Competition
Mind you...! We will test on the local river if they can sail, or float (pulled on a string). They must be 'seaworthy' zeewaardig.
Een Klompscheepje. With a sail? Or just an arty one - een Kunstklomp!
Across the country Nederlanders are organising family friendly Orange Bike Rides to promote cycling as a sustainable means of transport for all of Aotearoa New Zealand to enjoy.
