May 2024- Create Together Subscription Box

Get kids thinking about technology with this robots art box! These five projects give young artists an imaginative way to explore STEM concepts. As they work through each project, they’ll be given creative freedom to design the robot of their dreams. They’ll love all of the hands-on materials like nuts, bolts, gears, clay, wood, and metallic paint. Every robot is guaranteed to have plenty of personality! Children will also be working on new artistic skills like stamping, step-by-step drawing, and clay sculpting. To wrap up this art box, kids will get a taste of origami with one beginner tutorial and one advanced project.
