Know Puzzles – PVC Pipe Forts

February 27 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Create your very own PVC pipe fort!

This is an in-person program. Registration is required. This workshop is intended for children ages 3-10, and all children must be accompanied by a caregiver.

Pipes, connectors, right angles, oh my! This fort building workshop utilizes puzzle-solving and purposeful play to construct imaginative forts. We will go into the mechanics of PVC pipes (inputs, outputs, and angles) and the basic structure needed to support fabrics and make a cozy little hideaway. We’ll have a couple of different schematics to choose from, and kids can go “shopping” for additional pieces needed to create their fort. This 3-D puzzle will be an exercise in color matching, direction following, troubleshooting and teamwork!
