Kids have been building their own toys and instruments from found materials since the beginnings of play. This week, Tinkertopia is excited to guide Jr. Tinkerers through the creative process as we explore classic toys and noisemakers inspired by different time periods and world regions.

SUMMER TINKER CAMP FOR KIDSWEEK 3 / TinkerCAMP - “World-O-Puppets” - July 30th-August 3rd
Times: 9:00am- 12:00pm
Ages: 6-11
Making puppets combines the spirit of the theater with the craft of articulated sculpture and is one of Tinker-Expert, Ms. Darcy’s favorite things (she was once a puppeteer educator/performer)! Tinkertopia takes the week to explore several forms of hand made puppets and playfully gives children the opportunity to bring upcycled and found objects to life.
