We starten 2017 met een echte meidenfavoriet: ridders en prinsessen! Samen met ridder Florian duiken we de Middeleeuwen in en verdiepen we ons in het dagelijkse leven van ridders en prinsessen.  Doen prinssessen elke dag een lange  jurk aan?  Wat eten ridders en prinsessen?  Zijn er ook bange ridders?   We komen het allemaal te weten tijdens het thema `Ridders en prinsessen`.

De letter van de week is de `ei`
