2019 Summer Maker Program
May 27 – Aug 16 all-day

The Peoria PlayHouse Summer Maker Program begins on Memorial Day: Monday, May 27 and ends on Friday, 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!

On your next visit, pick up a Maker Map at the front desk, filled with 25 awesome challenges. Some of the squares MUST be completed at the Peoria PlayHouse, while others can be done at home with your favorite adult OR at the museum in our Real Tools maker space.

Just as a reminder, Real Tools summer hours are:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 12-4pm

Tuesday, Closed

Saturday, 9am-4pm
Sunday, Noon-5pm

For every FIVE stamps you collect, you’ll receive a small prize of your choice AND a raffle ticket for the Grand Prize: a basket of tools and supplies to make more amazing projects at home!

For questions about the Summer Maker Program, please contact our Family and Public Programs Educator, Adrienne Huffman, at (309) 323-6894.
