Christmas ain’t over until the kids say so
Got some wound up kids on your hand? Check out these activities going on between Christmas and New Year’s
Family Xmas party
If your kids (and you) are still not fed up with red hats and gingerbread, here’s yet another chance to celebrate Christmas. At the ‘third day of Christmas’ party at Grundvig’s church you can maintain your high-calorie holiday intake with candy and æbleskiver, show off all of your regained carol singing skills, and do another lap around the Christmas tree.
Grundtvigs Kirke, På Bjerget, Cph NV; Thu 14:00; free adm, www.grundtvigskirke.dk
Chemistry & Fireworks
They’re big, bright and sound like a BANG − the holiday season is a time when the skies will be lit up by plenty of fireworks and sparkles, and now you can learn just how those giant sparklers work. At the Experimentarium, the popular exhibition and fireworks show teaches anyone interested in the chemistry behind our favourite fire hazards. Don’t miss this show! It will be sure to make you ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ … and also say ‘aha’!
