A Place For Smaller Kids To Let Off Steam…

On the corner of the Elandstraat and Waldeck Pyrmontkade stands and old 19th Century school, now converted into a kinds of an “arts building” with separate sections consisting of workshops, eateries and children’s workshop activities.

One of the later is a children’s play area, and two friends who have young children with Birthday’s close together, decided to hold a joint birthday party there.

Little Mr was roped in to be a “big kid helper” , Himself as and extra parental pair of hands and me as party photographer.

The venue is excellent because both children’s birthday’s fall in the dead of winter and suitable energy intensive outdoor activities for four year olds are few and far between.

The beautiful hall sports all kinds of dance and play equipment, from large rubber bouncy balls to gymnastic style crash mats and equipment. There is a small room off to one side of the main hall, food was arranged on tables inside, leaving the main hall free for more energetic activities.

Cakes were made for each “Birthday” kid, the rest of the fare consisted of healthy and easy finger food. The kids ran, played to their hearts content, food was demolished and candles on cakes were blown out, a good time was had by all.

For me, several hundred photos later, I have photographs galore of the party VIP’s and their friends, Himself and Little Mr were fabulous helpers. Most importantly is that not only was a good time had by all, but also that yet another young kid-friendly activity /venue was found to advertise here for the residents of The Hague and close surrounding area.
