During summer holidays Het Verhalenatelier organizes Dutch language workshops for multilingual children, aged 5 to 8, in Amstelveen. On these mornings we make a radio play, stop motion film or shadow play, with small groups of up to 6 children.

For children who do not speak Dutch at home, it can be helpful to be in a Dutch-speaking environment during summer holidays. In a playful way they are challenged to practice their Dutch. Moreover, they discover how to make a story, how to tell the story and they expand their Dutch vocabulary.

Creative summer activities to improve Dutch language skills

The workshops are on Mondays and Thursdays form July 15 until August 1 from 9 am to 12 am.

Monday July 15 2019: radio play

We investigate how you can make different sounds with simple objects. How do you make the sound of the rain or wind? Together we make a story and eventually we will record our own radio play.

Thursday July 18 2019: stop motion film

We are going to make a stop motion film: a film that is made up of photos. First we come up with the story, after which we make the characters and the decor out of clay. Then we will record our own story step by step. The result: a real movie.

Monday July 22 2019: shadow play

Playing with shadow is magical for children. We will investigate this together: for example, what kind of animals can you make with your hands? We craft the silhouettes for our shadow play. Finally we play the story, which is made into a film.
