Makers Club is all things creating and making with your hands. Ms. Reineke will lead students in Makers projects, such as necklaces, bracelets, key chains, salt dough/play dough, sculptures, stress balls, etc. We could also make things that they wouldn't take home like with legos, blocks, etc. This is a great hands-on creative FUN learning experience.
