The Importance of Play

Don’t wait for a visit to a maker space to start thinking like a maker.  A makerspace isn’t really about the materials in the space, it is the mindset of the person making.  We don’t often have time to look around our world and think hmmm….what can I make with that leaf and those sticks!

Playing provides time for unstructured and creative time that will bring out your creativity.  You want your makers to see different types of materials. By doing so, you will create more:

  •  innovation
  • inventing
  • connection with others!
  • A sense of community
