Something’s going on – we wrote last Saturday – and asked you to build carnival floats. The response has been overwhelming. The Yango Kids editorial team has received many, many emails with photos. In fact: something is going on!
The selection is great. Small wagons, big wagons, small units, complete trains with fools on the roadside: hats off. The Yango Kids readership is really creative. Many girls and boys responded to our call to build colorful carnival floats for our virtual Yango Kids carnival parade through Münsterland. The result is beautiful, colorful, crazy, foolish carnival floats. They deserved to roll on the street. From Romans fighting against Corona, to scooter-riding girls who have a panda car in tow, to the encouraging rainbow that rolls across the Prinzipalmarkt in Münster: it’s amazing what you’ve built.
Corona and Star Wars
Toilet paper rolls are on the way. Race tracks were used by the jolly car builders. And you always thought of the fools on the roadside. Elves, Star Wars characters, knights and sometimes even Santa Claus gather there. Carnival attracts everyone to the streets – even if it can only be completely virtual in the Corona year.
You also had a lot to tell. Greta and Piet, for example, are real Rhinelander – their parents, however, Münsteraner. Your double-decker train must therefore start in Münster and Düsseldorf. Because Emilie and Ina were snowed in at Grandma Silke’s in Coesfeld, the two Frankfurt girls sent their train of elves and dragons on a journey through the Münsterland.
First grader Vincenz built a sleek speedster. Very futuristic. Ten-year-old Till puts a mask on his car. Better safe than sorry. Franz, Thea and Lutz actually live in Ascheberg. They let their lively underwater world with a rainbow of encouragement roll over the Prinzipalmarkt in Münster.
There are so many nice things to say. For example, from Tessa, who celebrates her birthday on Carnival Sunday. Your whole family helped build the jubilee parade through Greven.
Biäelske Boys on Tour
Hanna from Nottuln sends the “Biäelske Boys” team on tour. The Biäelske Boys are their dad Dirk and his buddy Volker, who appear in the hometown of dad (Belecke in the Sauerland) as a singing duo in Brings outfit at the carnival. Therefore, the car is “disguised” in the look of the Cologne band Brings. Hanna’s dad is currently the reigning Prince Dirk I from Breitkopf at the GBK in Belecke (Large Belecker Carnival Society). His buddy Volker is one of the three pages.
Oh: And the Yango building task was also suitable as homework. Some of you wrote to us that you built the train because the class teacher passed our idea on. We think that’s great, of course!
