Mini Sushi Chefs

A great option this summer is a sushi course for your kids. They will learn how to make a healthy food, while you’ll get to welcome your very own private sushi chefs back to your home.

The two-hour course is being led by sushi chef and sake sommelier Zoë Escher. It is aimed at children aged between 10 and 15.

After acquiring all the techniques, they will take home a total of 24 sushi pieces. For more details on what to bring, be sure to check the website.


Create and learn
Every Sunday of June, 10:30-16:30; SMK, Sølvgade 48-50, Cph K; tickets 45kr

Statens Museum for Kunst has workshops on Sundays for the small ones. Drop off your kids and let them be inspired with clay, paper, paint, brushes and glue guns, while they create their own art.

For the older kids (4-12) they also host guided tours of the museum in order to introduce them to the different exhibitions.

It is a great opportunity for them to see the museum world at a young age. For the opening hours you need to check their website, as they tend to update it closer to the time.
