You know you’re in Denmark when…
It’s 10 am. And there they are, a crocodile of Danish nursery kids. You’ll usually see them in ‘troops’ of 20 kids and 3 teachers.
Yep, they’re out and about. Whatever the season, whatever the weather (“You know when you’re in Denmark when…(No such thing as bad weather!)”)
Crocodiles of small Danish kids are a common sight. What day is it? It’s “tur dag” – ‘daytrip day’!
Most nurseries and kindergartens have set days for set activities, for example:
- mandag, bagedag (Monday, baking)
- tirsdag, rytmik (Tuesday, music and movement)
- onsdag, legetøjsdag (Wednesday, bring a toy)
“Tur dag” is the day when the kids go on a trip. Either to a museum, a nearby playground or even just a walk around the neighbourhood. You know kids – a five minute walk soon turns into a thirty minute expedition when you stop to look with awe and wonder at every single snail, conker and (red Danish) squirrel that you meet along the way! 🙂
And what’s that at the back of the crocodile? The ubiquitous Danish wooden wagon to hold the “turtasker” (“day trip rucksacks”)…
Have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend – wherever you end up!
