Kids Corner

Visiting the Fashion for Good Museum is also a fun activity for kids and families.

For curious young minds there’s the Fashion for Good Kids Corner! This is a special space in the museum where kids can get creative and dream up their own version of the future of fashion, right here in the museum.

We have a few activities available that are designed to be as fun and interactive as possible for 8-12 year olds and are available in Dutch and English. Here the kids – or innovators and designers of the future as we’d like to call them – can celebrate their birthdays, attend workshops or join educational programmes.

Kids activities available all year round

  • Scavenger hunt or material bingo: go on a mission through the museum and get to know all the interesting new innovations helping to shape the future of the fashion industry!
  • Kids T-shirt decorating station: Get creative in the kids corner and bring a plain T-shirt to life with recycled scraps of materials, ribbons and fabric markers! Kids can choose to bring their own T-shirt to the museum to give it a new life. Alternatively, Fashion for Good Museum also offers our very own special T-shirt to decorate with the option of a cool statement print, available to buy at the front desk where you can also purchase your museum tickets. Ask our lovely hosts for more information!

Other Education Programmes

    MBO/HBO Toolkit – Classroom of the Future: the stories behind cotton

    [AVAILABLE IN DUTCH LANGUAGE ONLY]

    Educational toolkit Classroom of the Future: the stories behind cotton takes students on a six session journey exploring the impact of cotton on people and our planet. Simultaneously, students are encouraged to follow, recognise and map their own learning and design process. They also gain understanding of how history and stories around a material can have impact on the present and the future as the next generation of makers. This toolkit is adaptable and suitable for MBO and HBO education students with a focus on creative studies like fashion, art and design. Teachers are also encouraged to use the tools as a base to apply in their own contexts.
