Today was sunny and frigid in Bayreuth’s Altstadt. Nonetheless, as kids wandered home from school, they played outside. And along the way, Wundersam Anders added a new game to the Schatzkiste – two boys taught us how to play Kaugummi. The premise of the game is stepping in Kaugummi, which is normally ganz frustrating. But, Kaugummi isn’t such a Frustration on a frozen Fußweg. So, well into Dezember, we ask: “Warum soll man im kalten Winter draußen spielen?”
1.) If der Weihnachtsmann brings toys in winter, why shouldn’t we play with them in winter?
3.) New season = new games
4.) Verstecken is much easier in the dark.
5.) All the Hüte und Handschuhe aren’t going to wear themselves.
6.) It’s here until April. That’s a long time to hibernate.
7.) Exercise! (insert emojis here 😉 )
8.) Schnee is magical. Cold is spannend.
9.) What is the alternative? The sofa? Staring at your Handy?
10.) Uh, hallo?! Spaß!!
