create a 3d toy

Children will celebrate the small joys of inventing and creating with family at Common Street Arts! In collaboration with the Family Enrichment Council, we offer a free interactive toy-making event with 3d printed elements from our studio. This program is designed to bring children (and their adults!) a little joy as we raise awareness of Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Month. Healthy snacks will be served.

All ages welcome, although children under 6 years will need a parent to help create a toy.

Free. Donations will be accepted to the Family Enrichment Council.
