Builder's Workshop

Welcome to Builder's Workshop

Join us in exploring building projects designed for adolescents using household materials. Let us open the door for creative thinking and problem-solving. Students will learn to follow verbal and written instructions as they build fun projects and interactive games. Post any of your pictures and video clips of your learning and end-products to Twitter: #cartsummercamps

Popsicle Stick Collage Picture Frame

This project is open to a lot of creative design and alterations. The frame can be changed based on the size and amount of pictures. The directions show the foundational steps, but they are not necessarily meant to be followed exactly.
