Makerspaces Aren't Just for Classrooms: How to Make a DIY Makerspace at Home!

There is a wave of excitement in American classrooms with the addition of Makerspaces making their way across the country. These dynamic and interactive classroom centers are engaging and a creative space for kids to learn how things work and to think creatively. It's all about a growth mindset where failure is a catalyst for success when it comes to taking chances by designing and making something new! But don't let your child's teacher take all the credit, make one at home! Parent supervision and a dedicated space are required for some "making." Here are some free or low-cost supplies to stock your at-home Makerspace. (Tip: Don't spend money on something unless you have a specific use for it!)

You can find lots of resources and ideas for how to use these supplies online if you aren't sure where to start. Make away!!
