Every kid is capable of brilliant creation and utter destruction. Kind of like the universe. Or a new menu item at Burger King. So why not take them to a place where they can do both while getting a good grasp on some STEAM skills? “Makerspaces” are basically workshops where creative kids can design, develop, code, and construct whatever springs from their imagination, and they’re probably closer to you than you think. And, while most target adults, here’s the shortlist of best makerspaces for kids preschool and up. Because if you’re not allowed have an arc welder in a garage, you may as well play with someone else’s.
