Molkky

If you are in any way a follower of Instagram or read Babyccino Kids on a regular basis, you might have noticed that we all have been suffering from a very, very cold winter which has continued long into April. Well, this weekend was the first sunny weekend in 2013 and I think EVERYONE in the whole of Europe went outside and smiled.

We were challenged by some friends to a game of Molkky in our local park. Have you heard of it? It is the best – it’s a bit of a Skandinavian skittles, perfect for parks and gardens as you throw a piece of wood at the skittles, as opposed to rolling it. (As an aside, it is also really good for learning how to count in your head, as you need to get 50 points exactly).

I can just imagine a gang of Vikings playing this somewhere along a fjord…

HI,

I just need to mention that Mölkky is a traditional Finnish game and we don’t have Vikings here. Otherwise the game is good fun! Enjoy the game!

PS. I love your blog.

I am so sorry Anna, as a mainland European I have the tendency to bulk all the Skandinavien countries together and throw Finnland in the mix, which is not quite fair on you, I know! Glad to hear you like the blog!
