Clothes swap

by Ludmila Kozlová, ZŠ a Montessori MŠ Prachatice, Národní 1018

At our Montessori School in Prachatice (Czech Republic) we had a clothes swap. We made posters first. They should motivate children to bring clothes they don´t need but are still nice, and to save them buying new instead. One day before the swap, children could bring anything they don’t wear. At day “D” we arranged the brought clothes in the corridor. Children came during the break. We prepared some refreshments, posters about fast fashion and how to avoid it, one girl played the piano and everybody tried to see if the clothes fitted. It was very successful, almost everything was “swapped” and we are excited to do it again.
