Amazon Netherlands’ first Kids Day brought together employees' children for an afternoon filled with educational fun and engaging activities. The event offered a diverse range of workshops and entertainment options, catering to kids of all ages and interests.

The day kicked off with a warm welcome and refreshments, setting the tone for the fun that was to follow. As the children arrived, they were greeted by our popcorn and candy floss stations, instantly putting smiles on their faces. Throughout the afternoon, attendees could also enjoy various entertainment options, including a face painter and a photobooth, where they could capture memories with their friends and family.

One of the highlights of the day was the "Learning how to programme, one game at a time" workshop, which introduced children aged 5 to 12 to the basics of coding and programming through the user-friendly Scratch platform. By dragging and dropping programming blocks, the kids created fun animations and games, sparking their creativity and inventiveness in the process.

For those with an interest in music and technology, the "Dance Party: AI Edition" workshop proved to be a major hit. Participants aged seven and above learned about AI concepts and used their newfound knowledge to create virtual dance parties showcasing today's top artists. With a diverse selection of songs to choose from, the kids coded their preferred dance moves, resulting in personalised dance parties that expressed their unique styles.

The "Exploring K-Pop Culture Through an AI Chatbot" workshop catered to the ever-growing legion of young K-pop fans. Designed for kids aged eight and up, this session allowed participants to dive into the world of K-pop culture by interacting with a cutting-edge AI chatbot. Within seconds, they could discover the most popular K-pop bands, songs, and other fascinating insights.

For a more serene and mindful experience, the "Yoga and Breathwork for Kids" workshop offered exactly that. Children engaged in gentle yoga poses and guided breathing exercises, promoting emotional well-being and enhancing concentration.
