Kids Activities In Amsterdam

Amsterdam has plenty of fun activities available (in English) for babies, toddlers & kids of all ages! From music, to dancing, to art & sports classes - it's all available in Amsterdam! Wondering which activities are possible during the pandemic?  So many businesses have gotten creative to be able to still offer activities virtually or outdoors & hopefully soon can get back to welcoming your and your little ones to their facilities around the city. We are featuring a great group of local activity providers below & make sure to check out our full list of activities on our sister-site Amsterdam Families.

  • Dancing For Birth™ classes teach a “language of movement” specially designed for women in any stage of pregnancy and after birth. The movements are inspired by world dance forms like Latin dance, Caribbean dance, African dance and Belly dance.

    We practice techniques for comfort during pregnancy and the labor progress. We also stretch, relax and use inspiration/affirmation cards to share and discuss our motherhood journeys in a nurturing women circle.

    Dancing is a fun and gentle exercise that everyone can enjoy, even if you’ve been told you have two left feet! This is the perfect time to connect with your body and your baby through movement and awareness. You’ll be surprised at the numerous benefits for your pregnancy, your birth, your baby and your postpartum recovery.

    Little Star Fitness provides fun, innovative, sports fitness and dance programs, birthday parties, holiday camps, and corporate entertainment specifically designed for children between the ages of 2-12.


    Our popular classes include activities like sport, dance, circus, aerial silks, and cheerleading. Our main focus is to improve children’s gross and fine motor skills, coordination, and rhythm whilst building the children’s self-confidence in a fun and non-competitive environment. Children who participate in Little Star Fitness sessions will further develop their love for physical activity, dance, and sport, assist with living a healthy lifestyle, decrease childhood obesity and increase confidence in all aspects of their life. All classes and activities are delivered in English; however, we do have coaches available who speak a variety of languages. 

    During all LSF sessions, children learn lots of different skills really important for everyday life, like teamwork, setting and achieving goals, listening and concentration, following instruction, communication, hand-eye and foot-eye coordination.

    'We believe in the power of dance and movement as a tool for expression, communication and interaction.'

    With the individual strengths and needs of each child as a starting point we use dance and movement as a therapeutic tool for positive growth, for healing, and for development. 

    Growing up is a process which each individual goes through in their own way and both children and parents may encounter challenges or unexpected situations along that journey. We are there to support this process and offer a safe space to explore alternative ways of being and interacting, and to help children develop tools which can help them in daily life.

    At Mini Professors we are passionate about science and we aim to inspire a generation. Our theme tune’s opening line is ‘Science is all around us’ and this reflects the ethos of our lessons. We feel that all children have a great thirst for learning from a young age and therefore, should be given every opportunity to develop and learn new skills and wonder at the world around them. Our science classes are suitable for curious kids 2-7 years old.

    We believe that science should be accessible to all. As with any language, children can easily absorb and learn from an early age. That is why we endeavour not to dumb down scientific terminology but explain scientific principles in simple terms with fun experiments. We encourage our Mini Professors to explore for themselves and interact as much as possible.
