2020 Summer Maker Program

May 11, 2020 – August 16, 2020 all-day

The Peoria PlayHouse Summer Maker Program begins on Memorial Day: Monday, May 11 and ends on Sunday, August 16. We hope this program encourages you to try out different types of tools and inspires you to make fun projects, all summer long!

Our Maker Map is available on the Innovation at Home webpage. Usually some projects must be done at the PlayHouse, but this year we have adapted the program so that they can all be done at home!


For every FOUR stamps you collect, you’ll receive a Dairy Queen coupon. Those who complete all 16 challenges will be entered to win an EXCLUSIVE PlayHouse party for the people in your household (and depending on updated Social Distancing guidelines, a few friends, too!)

To be eligible to win a prize, submit photos of your completed challenge using this submission form on our website. Within a week, you will receive an email with your Maker Map with stamps for every challenge you complete. And don’t forget to share your photos on social media using the hashtag #PHSummerMakers!
