Kids have tons of fun stuff to do during Wonderfeel! During the mornings and afternoons on Friday, Saturday and Sunday there is a continuous program for kids with performances, arts and crafts, workshops, baking bread, you name it!
And: children aged 18 and under can visit the festival for free! They do need a ticket, which you can order via the ticketshop.
Dear Audience (6+)
The audience – that means you! – comes and sits comfortably on a bench near the tent, ready for the performance. But … nothing happens? Only a mysterious letter hangs above the stage, beginning with “Dear Audience.
In this cheerful family workshop, the entire audience is given a clear assignment: you have 30 minutes to create a performance, and time starts now! Who will write the story? Who plays in the orchestra? Who are the directors? Who make the costumes? After half an hour we will play the public try-out and the festive world premiere of the brand new performance.
Tip: Would you like to play along on your own instrument and can you easily and safely bring your instrument? Very nice! There are also a few instruments available for you.

Be Opera (6+)
What makes opera so special and what happens when musicians sing and play their instruments? Be Opera is a musical experience for the whole family. Imperceptibly, the music of various composers creeps into your ears, never to leave there. Storyteller Ton Meijer drags you along for the third time at Wonderfeel, after his gripping shows Be Bach and Be Mozart. Come discover the diva in yourself!
Eric Robillard (direction), Ton Meijer (narrator), Marije van Stralen (soprano), Christina Edelen (organ)
Did you get hungry from all that playing? Come over to the camp fire and roast your own bun. Put it on a stick and turn, turn, turn it over on the fire! Make sure you don’t burn it and eat it straight away, because they taste the best when they’re warm.
Globe Instruments Garden
Have you always wanted to play a violin? Or an oboe, clarinet, trumpet, or even the cello? At Wonderfeel’s Instruments Garden you can try all kinds of instruments!
The Instruments Garden is organized in collaboration with music school Globe.
Do it yourself
If there’s anything Jorinde Verweij loves, it’s turning old things into beautiful new things. In this workshop she will teach you how to create a musical instrument out of recycled material.

Finding water critters
Ponds may seem very quiet, but actually there are all kinds of special critters living in them. Take a net and go on an exploration to find them and to look at them up close!
This is just a tip of the iceberg, but there will be a jam-packed children’s program all weekend. If you are curious about the children’s program, save this page in your favorites and feel free to come back to see if more has been revealed!
