The good news is that you probably already have everything you need to ignite your child’s creativity.

The bad news is that it is about to get messy up in here! Makerspaces are all about taking chances, making mistakes and, yes, getting messy. (Thanks, Ms. Frizzle.) But seriously, I believe messes are often a sign of artists at work, children at play or both.
