Getting ready for the hunt!

Getting ready for the hunt!

by Mala Raman

For the first TICKids outing of the club season, 4 TIC families met up at ‘t Fazantje Maisdoolhof (corn maze) in Dongen to complete a challenging quest within the corn Successmaze. After a week of rain, we were very lucky with the weather and were able to enjoy very pleasant, sunny temperatures the entire afternoon.

The instructions were simple: walk through the cornfield looking for letters and pictures of emojis. The letters, when combined, form a message. Sounds easy? Not quite. Both kids and adults entered the corn maze armed with pen and paper to find all of the hidden emojis within the tall corn stalks.

Once in the maze, there were no signs to orient us, to remind us which paths we’d already trodden, which letters we’d already found. Even the tallest among us couldn’t see above the corn stalks and he was almost six feet tall! That didn’t faze the children at all. Each took a turn leading the group as we wended our way through the trail, peered through leaves for those elusive clues, walked along and doubled back down pathways. The maisdoolhof proved a challenge for children and adults alike. Each family moved at their own pace answering most, if not all, of the questions.

ne by one, families emerged from the corn having successfully completed their “speurtocht” (trailhunt). After all that running around, we sat down together for a drink and lots of chatting. Finally, dinner bells starting ringing and one by one everyone said “tot ziens” until the next TICKids event!
