Maker's Box with Cathren Housley, Childrens Book Illustrator

What will you make?

For each session, Cathren Housley will bring a mystery Maker's Box, along with a variety of adhesives and tools that kids may need to complete their project. We will have a different theme to start from every week. How they decide to express their ideas is up to them.
