Learn Skills. Be Awesome. DIY is the best way for kids to learn new skills, meet others who share the same passions, and generally be awesome. We'll be using DIY to explore new subjects while practicing skills and the best part is you can learn new skills at home and share them with us every month. Keep a portfolio of everything you do online and/or in a cool notebook. Collect virtual badges on the web and physical ones at each program! Learn more at DIY.org

This month we'll be papercrafters and make our very own pop-up books and cards. Check out the challenge ahead of time here: https://diy.org/skills/papercrafter/challenges/150/make-a-pop-up-book
