FAMILY WEEKEND ABC-HOUSE 27-28/04/2019

FAMILY WEEKEND ABC-HOUSE 27 AND 28 APRIL 2019

Unicorn Mania
The legendary white horse with the magic spiral horn is visiting ABC! But don’t expect the commercialized version of the unicorn galloping over the rainbow. Expect instead the myths, the symbols and stories about that mythical animal which is so difficult to capture. The ones that bring us from ancient history to the “Jacht op de eenhoorn (Hunting the Unicorn)”, the 7 piece tapestry woven in the 1500s in Brussels or Liège.
And of course there are enough workshops prepared to bring your own unicorn to life.

This time a wooden kachina figure is a guest in our toy display case.
Every year in the mid-winter period, the Hopi people honor their forefathers through a ritual ceremony with kachina dancers.
Within the Hopi community, the daughters receive miniature versions of these different spirits.
But on this family weekend, boys can also create their own kachina figures.

Of course you can also expect new game materials, activities, stories and surprises.
Welcome!
