ENROLLMENT DEADLINE: March Family Norwegian Language Adventure!

February 18


Join Vesterheim this March for some family-fun and learn some Norwegian language 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 March 1 and will focus on Vikinger og Mytologi, Vikings and Mythology! Celebrate the month by gaining a new understanding of the Norwegian language and Norwegian culture with us.

Vocabulary and phrases will focus on things related to the topic. 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—focused on the fun history and mythology of Norway. These videos and activities are geared towards all ages, but probably most appropriate for families with school-age children. You and your family will be spending time together being active in different ways learning about Vikinger og Mytologi!  Our scavenger-hunt-type activity will get you up and moving, exploring, embracing the adventure wherever you are and whenever you choose.

This is a youth and family-oriented program. Don’t hesitate to contact Josh Torkelson, Digital Folk Art Coordinator, with any questions you may have (jtorkelson@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 April 5. Only one adult should register for the whole family.

Enrollment Deadline: February 18. Enroll here.
