Little Makers

Little Makers invites families with young children to tinker, design and create together. Join us and explore new materials, tools and processes as you make a project to take home. Sometimes creativity can get messy, so dress your little maker (and yourself) in old clothing that can be splattered with things like paint, ink and glue.
