AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM WHERE KIDS FLOURISH

Expert's Pick

E11 CREATIVE WORKSHOP

Consider it a "maker space" with adult supervision. Children areĀ free to create whatever their hearts desire using recycled materials, art supplies and a variety of big-people tools (used with supervision). (My son's first creation: a "cream cheese coconut cross;' made from the lid of a cream cheese tub, chunks of wood and glue.) Not in the mood to create? Kids can dismantle electronics, play make-believe, arrange colorful blocks on a light table, sew, plunge their hands into sensory-friendly Jurassic Sand and more. Think of Ell as fertilizer for the young mind.
