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 · tape - scotch or masking · glue stick or Elmer’s glue · scissors · construction paper · small recycled boxes (to make castles, cottages, etc.) · twigs collected outside · cardboard scraps to construct 3D elements.

This is an open-ended challenge. Use supplies you have at home to embellish your model. Some suggestions: · tin foil · buttons · egg cartons, cut up · Playdough · tissue paper · markers and/or crayons · wrapping paper to cover boxes · Popsicle sticks & toothpicks · Cardboard tubes · pebbles & pinecones · and more!
