Create a shelter for a fantasy character of your choice in this interactive workshop. We will show some examples to get your imagination fired up. Then build your model along with the architect-educator from ArchForKids. A great family activity for all ages.

Materials needed: 

cardboard base – can be cut from a mailing carton

scissors, tape & glue

construction paper

small recycled boxes or dixie cups (to make castles, cottages)

cardboard scraps to construct 3D elements

Use supplies you have at home to embellish your model. Some suggestions: tin foil, buttons, playdough, egg cartons, tissue paper, cardboard tubes, pebbles and more!
