    Keva Planks! - 12/4, 12/11, 12/18 (Tues)

    When: Tuesday, December 4, 11, & 18 from 3-4 PM

    Build with Keva Planks in an engaging, interactive learning space. Try out quiet guided construction or activities that bring stories, STEM and art to life.

    What are Keva Planks? (from the Keva Planks website)

    Here are the basics..

    Every piece is the same. KEVA planks are about 1/4 inch thick, 3/4 inch wide and 4 1/2 inches long.

    You build structures by simply stacking the planks. No glue, no connectors. They can be stacked upright which looks like it would be unstable as a house of cards, but even this type of structure is surprisingly stable.

    The simplicity is compelling. Just as it is hard to explain why something is funny, it is hard to explain why most people- both children and adults- really become captivated by KEVA Planks.

    Space is limited - please call to reserve a space (244-7036).  Ages 8 to 11.
