Maker Program Collaborations @ Bonnie W. Noble Center
Apr 13 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join the Peoria PlayHouse at the Bonnie Noble Center in Lakeview Park for a special new program offering: Maker Collaborations!

Maker Collaborations is a partnership between the Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum and various Peoria Park District facilities focusing on MAKING WITH A PURPOSE. Your family will have the opportunity to work on bird feeders with the Forest Park Nature Center that will be used in their upcoming Earth Day Festival!

A PPD staff member will lead a short content presentation about the project and then children and families will utilize the makerspace to complete their projects. All families will be encouraged to go visit their projects “in the wild” once they are installed/being utilized the Saturday after the program takes place!

Advanced Registration is required.
