Autumn is craft time
No season brings with it as much natural craft material as autumn. Chestnuts, acorns, colorful leaves, nuts and more. There is a high probability that there will also be a tree on your children’s way to kindergarten or school that loses craft material. So use the road home and get ready for a pleasant needlework afternoon. I especially like this funny chestnut marionette.
October is pumpkin season
Either as a soup, as a buffer or as a cake. Pumpkin is an all-rounder and is often well received by children. Not to be forgotten are the funny pumpkin faces, which should not be missing for Halloween by the end of October at the latest.
Lantern for the Martin parade
The Martin parades don’t take place until November, but it’s best to take care of the lantern now. It doesn’t matter whether it needs to be upgraded from last year or whether a new one needs to be made, preferably from old materials, a test ride at dusk is also fun and gets you in the mood for the colder seasons.
Roast marshmallows over the fire
Fortunately, the risk of forest fires has decreased again, and fires can once again be lit at the designated fire places. In Freiburg you will find plenty of fireplaces and there is definitely one near you. Wrap yourself and your loved ones up and have a cozy late afternoon by the fire. Don’t forget the marshmallows.
When it’s raining and cold outside and there’s time inside, an afternoon of reading is just the ticket. If it is not Monday and you are not afraid of rain, you can combine the afternoon reading with a trip to the city library.
“Hey, hey, hey, taxi!” in the theater in Mariánské Lázně
The theater breaks are also over in October, and there are plenty of offers at the city’s well-known venues. If you haven’t gotten around to saying “Hey, hey, hey, dachshund!” in the theater in Marienbad can look forward to. The one-man play based on Saša Stanišic’s book is performed again at the end of October and also in November.
“secret path” in the front building
There is also plenty of performing arts to see in the front building in October. Kasper and Bello get caught up in a pirate adventure. “Schleichweg” promises “a mechanical roller coaster ride for the eyes, the heart and the imagination!”, the little king and his friends keep finding new answers to everyday questions and experience small new adventures with his friends, and Toni goes in search of the missed a Luigi’s secret recipe…
Children’s literature festival Lirum, Larum, reading festival
For all book and reading fans: Lirum, Larum, Reading Festival for children starts on 9 October. The focus of around 50 events is the world of children’s literature. The grand finale of the Lirum-Larum Reading Festival takes place on 16 October in the Freiburg Theater and features readings by Boris Pfeiffer with “Survivors”, Sabine Bohlmann with “Frau Honig” and Eric Mayer’s own experimental reading as well as live drawings in the little house.
