Children’s Museum Art that Blinks, Buzzes, and Breathes


children's museum

This workshop was designed for young inventors. We taught how Littlebits works by letting them design their own puppets or wearable art! It is very free form. The only thing I noticed that got kids excited is letting them design it. Let them come up with ideas and jot them down, and help them once they have their idea with how they can actually make it.
