For the 2020-2021 school year, all Family Maker Nights will be held via Zoom. Each one will feature one or more hosts and a variety of activities designed so that you can follow along and do them at home. Videos of the activities will also be archived so you can watch them and do the activities later if you want.
We would love to be able to share your creations with others. Please submit your photos and we’ll post them here!
Please let us know who attended the event and how we did, and how we might be able to make it better next go-around.
