MATERIALS UPDATE: In the midst of quarantines and closures, I am aware that it may be difficult for some families to obtain all supply items listed for the class. I have been contacted by several parents that they are missing an item or two. That’s okay. In fact, it adds a great learning component to the class and fits in well during these times.

Although a list of recommended supplies is given, you can take the class without the exact supplies. Sticks from outside can be substituted for craft sticks, wrapping paper for newspaper, and sandwich bags for plastic wrap; are just a few examples. Encourage your child to be creative just as if they were a groundhog in the wild foraging for supplies to build a shelter! Children are remarkably resourceful and have come up with some great substitutions over my last few days of classes.

If you are able to a pick through a craft bin or still have an open store nearby, the list of supplies is:

Students will need the following resources before the start of class.
• Ski Ramp (smooth wood or plastic board about 5 x 40 inches)
• Craft Sticks / Popsicle Sticks
• Straws
• Plastic wrap
• Pipe cleaners
• Tape
• Aluminum foil
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
