"We always find a table, paper and drawing pencils, it is one of the first things they ask about, so we actually have some plastic table cloths and equipment, so it is everywhere in all houses."
"We found a small house, which turned out to be my father in law playhouse. It was repaired, got a new roof, painted and put into the park again. Today our grandchildren playing in the same house and have their secret meetings here. Cycling is also a favorite sports on the flat gravel paths."
"The house is perfect for Christmas, something we all in the family looks forward to every year. It loves the adults, children and grandchildren. Here we walk, draw, play or baked."
"In the summer house on Mågerø writes the queen that her grandchildren are eager in pursuit of wild strawberries and cherries, and that they are zealous in the swimming pool when they are visiting."
"The royal couple like to play different games with their grandchildren, often as a pastime on board the royal train to the mountains at Easter, not to mention the Prince hut at Easter. Queen Sonja loves to do things with her grandchildren - she bakes them and make gingerbread houses. And she draws and paints a lot with them - something they all love. And many of the drawings end up on the wall at grandmother," says Kjell Arne Totland.
