Make & Take Activities

“Make & Take” Activities are informal or general education activities that can be adapted for public programs at museums and science centers or after-school programs. They are simple, hands-on, craftsy with easily accessible materials, inexpensive to prepare, and can either work as a demonstration or result in a product that can be taken home.
