Maisdoolhof, Dongen 2012

by Mala Raman

The first TICKids outing of the club season started on a very chilly day!  4 TIC families with 8 adults and 7 kids met up at the Maisdoolhof in Dongen for a walk around the maze. Happily, it was actually a bit warmer inside the maze and there wasn’t too much rain until the very end of the day.

As families arrived, most of the kids made themselves at home in the well-equipped playground with a ground level trampoline, swing set, slide and sand box.  After everyone had arrived, both kids and adults entered the corn maze armed with pen and paper to find all of the questions hidden within the tall corn stalks.  The idea was to navigate through the maze by finding all 20 questions to answer.  This year, the questions were based on a mix of traditional Dutch fairy tales, the 2012 Olympics Games and all things corn.  Each family moved at their own pace answering most, if not all, of the questions.

One by one, families emerged from the corn.  All the kids received a drink and a yummy treat to eat.  Because of the cold and the steadily increasing rain, everyone retreated inside to the café for a warm drink.  There was lots of chatting and the kids kept everyone entertained.  Finally, dinner bells starting ringing and one by one everyone said “tot ziens” until the next TICKids event!
