Toy Hacking for Tweens & Teens

Join us on Tuesday, November 4 from 2 – 4 pm in Meeting Room A for        Toy Hacking.  This program is for tweens and teens in 4th – 12th grade.

Get creative as we take apart old toys and give them new life.  Tweens and Teens will be re-inventing toys by combining bits and pieces from different toys.  Just like Sid Phillips from Toy Story, only less scary.  We will also use markers, duct tape, foam, glue and more in your toy transformations.  We’ll have toys on hand, but attendees can bring in their own toys, random toy pieces or parts to add to our creations.

Here is an example of a Toy Hack. We started with a pink Disney princess tea pot.  We used a black sharpie, several types of duct tape/tape, buttons, washers, glue, and beads to create a tea pot fit for an evil queen.
