Design-Make-Play for Children and Families

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.
To learn more about Little Makers, call 718-699-0005 ext. 341 or contact us.
This program is supported in part by funding from the New York Community Bank Foundation, the Liu Foundation and the Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

Materials Fee (per session): $6 per child, plus NYSCI admission; $5 per child for members.
