Make & Learn

Welcome to Make & Learn! In this program, our librarians will be sharing easy-to-make games and activities that support cognitive development and practicing early literacy skills. 

In this video, Lisa shares two ways to make your own road for a toy car - one on the floor and one that is more puzzle-like. These activities encourage imagination and make believe play, which support cognitive development and abstract thinking.
