Small projects provide a window into an area of skill-building

One of the challenges of using a multi-purpose room is that we have to clean up after 1 1/2 hours. Either we disassemble things to store away or we try to choose projects that are quickly finished.
But we still want to challenge folks in new ways and not give them busy work.

Smaller projects like the following ones are opportunities to learn a new skill that might lead a youth or adult to explore further on their own.
