Koningsdag or "King's Day" is a national holiday in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. We celebrated at Little Gate by "taking a trip" to the Vondelpark, an outdoor park in Amsterdam that is reserved just for children during Koningsdag. Children typically put out blankets and sell toys, books, and clothing they no longer use. We had so much fun with crowns, birthday cakes, and orange flowers at our outdoor market! Simply put, this holiday is a birthday party for a King. What could be more fun? We wore orange and had special orange colored snacks this week to celebrate.
