ENROLLMENT DEADLINE: April Family Norwegian Language Adventure: Vår i Norge (Spring in Norway)

March 17


Join Vesterheim this April for some family fun and learn some Norwegian language and culture along the way! Through hands-on activities, fun crafts, light-hearted games, and short videos, you and your family will learn and practice your new Norwegian skills. A kit will be delivered right to your home containing supplies for these language activities, a helpful reference sheet for all the new words and expressions you will be learning, a fun craft, and a yummy treat.

The adventure starts on April 1 (that’s no joke) and the vocabulary and phrases will focus on vår i Norge, spring in Norway!

The instructional videos teaching you these key terms will be short to ensure you have plenty of time to be active and cozy up together as a family. These videos and activities are geared towards all ages, but most appropriate for families with school-age children. You and your family will be spending time together, enjoying the learning adventure, and sharing in springtime activities. Our scavenger-hunt-type activity will get you up and moving, exploring, and embracing the adventure wherever you are and whenever you choose. Share your family’s adventure and see what other families are doing through the Goosechase app!

Don’t hesitate to contact Andrew Ellingsen, Folk Art Coordinator, with any questions you may have (aellingsen@vesterheim.org).

Supplies: The $20-per-family price covers the cost of a special adventure kit, which includes language activities, reference sheets, fun hands-on craft activity, snack, and directions for downloading and using the Goosechase app (a free app that is downloadable on any iOS or Android device).

Special Instructions: Your “family” could be any combination of an adult or adults and child or children, all who are ready to have fun and learn some norsk are welcome! When registering for the class, please make sure to use the address you’d like the kit shipped to. Kits are mailed out as registration and payment are completed. Scavenger hunt results will be shared on social media the week of May 3. Only one adult should register for the whole family.

Note: This program has been designed for families to experience on their own schedules.  There is no live Zoom event and no scheduled class time—your family can participate anytime during the month when it works for your schedule!

Enrollment Deadline: March 17, 2021. Enroll here.
