Design A Game With CreatED By Crayola!

There are always things that are new in education and libraries that I just can't wait to get.  I might see them online, at a conference, or a librarian or teacher friend might tell me about them. 

Well, today was one of those days....when a super special package I have been waiting for arrived!  
 It was the Design A Game, a Create-to-Learn STEAM Program from...
 ...createED, Project Based Learning by Crayola. 
A few months ago my friends at Maker Maven told me they were going to be carrying this amazing new product for all of our elementary creators. I couldn't wait to find out more.

At the Maker Maven site, you can find out more, but let me share a few things I learned today too.
Each Design A Game, contains so many wonderful resources to engage and excite every age. 
They include pencils, markers, paper cards, wet-erase cards, sticker sheets for dice, game board and more. 
Everything that your students will need to create their own game is included, which is what makes this kit stand out above the rest!
I am especially impressed with the Teacher's Guide that includes methods and planning guides on how to get started. 
We are going to be using the Design A Game kit with our kindergarten and 1st graders at Van Meter.  They will be not only creating their own games, but also designing game pieces with Tinkercad, viewing them with MERGE in the Object Viewer and printing them on the 3D printers. 

We are so thankful for the chance to bring games to our library and students.  Thank you Maker Maven and Crayola for making this possible with this amazing new kit!
