Yesterday we had a blast bringing Crankshaft to Southwest Makers Fest in Downtown Mesa! We set up a puppet making station so everyone could make one of their choice: paper bag puppet, finger puppet, marionette, etc. First they drew a design of what they wanted to make. Then they choose recycled or repurposed bits from our supply shop! We provided scissors, hot glue, sharpies, string, etc. for their puppets creation process. I was amazed watching the creativity and imagination come alive for kids and adults alike! At the end of the day, Crankshaft received “Best of Fest” for the second year in a row 😮🥳
If you didn’t know, my boyfriend Hayden and his friend Justin are the creators and founders of Crankshaft: a mobile maker space and STEAM lab!
