Get creative with household items!

Looking for a creative, open-making art project to do at home with your child? Inspired by Open Making in our Innovators LAB at the Museum, we’ve created the Innovators LAB Design Challenge to encourage your child to use their critical thinking skills, creativity and imagination! Every Thursday we’ll add a new video to this page with a list of materials you can find around the house, and challenge you to be creative by making your own art piece.

We want to see your creations! Share your unique creations with us by posting a photo on social media, include #thinkplaycreatefromhome and #designchallenge and tag us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter!
