We are excited to give away a creativity-fueled week of maker day camp to Doodle to a lucky reader! Scroll down for details and entry.
The motto at Doodle is simple: kids are amazing, and deserve to do amazing things. Life is an experience… and that’s how camp should be. Roll up your sleeves, grab a tool and let’s make something intentional. Don’t know how that appliance works? Let’s take it apart. Have some extra picture wire? Let’s use it for jewelry making.
Is there a typical day?
Naw, every day is different. In the morning, design the user experience for our Luau Carnival in the 3D Art Lab, build a giant game of mousetrap in the Maker Lab, or make pasta from scratch in the mobile Cooking Lab. In the afternoon, play techno-ball and then build mini-motors or sew a scarf in the ‘X’ Lab. And this is only Monday!
Just remember – every one of your ideas has value. And as long as it’s safe, the answer is yes.
