Children's Event

Shoebox Houses

Design and construct a detailed miniature house for your favorite toy. We’ll work with shoe boxes, fabric scraps, paper, beads, pompoms, pipe cleaners, and found objects to create all the comforts of home.

This is the second of three Summer Reading hands-on building events.

*$5 for adults and children over 5.
