When makerspaces are designed for children, special motivation and reasoning needs to be made. Within this article, we describe a case study: A temporary four-day open makerspace for about 40 children per day. Motivation, considerations and the development process as well as the actual realization are described and discussed. We comment on how such a space for children and adolescents should be arranged for future studies. As described, considerations in terms of participation, peer tutoring and gender mainstreaming influence the design of the space, the methods used, as well as the general setting.
