Cute Sinterklaas

Last month we designed a Sinterklaas game for children for the beautiful online magazine Moodkids Sint Special. After, we were contacted by an American Kindergarten teacher. Their school was organizing a 'Holidays around the world' theme and they wanted to know if we could translate our game to English. Of course we did, because how cool is that, to know that children on the other side of the world will be playing it..! And a really nice idea too: "Each teacher represents a country and their custom. The teacher dresses up, has an activity and maybe a treat from that country."
We sent them some other suggestions too, like the 'pepernoten' recipe we saw on Babyccino blog.
And then a little later we got this thank you photo..
cute Sinterklaas ;-)
