We were asked to participate in the decoration of the Kinderboekenbal (opening of the children’s book week). This years’ theme was ‘Gruwelijk Eng’ (Horribly Scary) and the horror party was held in the Stadsschouwburg, Amsterdam.
A lot of children were dressed up really scary and off course the decoration also had to be (funny) scary. We built a giant spider (of 4 meter in wide) hanging in the staircase and in an other room we built a giant bed (size 5×3 meter) where a nice wolf was telling stories to the kids. It was also possible for the kids to crawl under the bed, where they could discover the scary insects which were hidden under it.
When the kids got thirsty they could get a drink at the scary bar, here they could tap a drink from the mouth of our pink dripping syrup monster:)
