Constructing Play is coming to the Center for a series of hands-on Family-friendly workshops held every Saturday between Thanksgiving and Christmas accompanied by an exhibit of children's building toys from the past 150 years. Also on display during Constructing Play , the Center's First Annual Gingerbread Architecture Challenge . Come by and vote for your favorite hand-built gingerbread architectural structure designed by one of the more than twenty teams entered. 

Constructing Play Workshops are comprised of 60-minute Read + Make for ages 5-8 and 90-minute Design + Build for ages 9-12. Workshops provide a hands-on introduction to the worlds of architecture and design and are taught by local architecture and design professionals.
