Have you been to the Tinker Lab at Omaha Children’s Museum? It’s had a makeover in the last year and is a fantastic place to teach kids to use basic tools with supervision.

The Tinker Lab has many materials on hand, like wood, cardboard, straws, tape, paperclips, clothespins, sewing machine and much more for kids to create their masterpieces. My kids love to nail or screw wood together to make boxes or even a mini catapult.

Not sure what to make at the Tinker Lab? I’m going to share how to make a simple DIY rubber band shooter and target board. These are so easy to make and my kids love shooting them. Read More…

Do More With The Hefty® EnergyBag™ Program

You can make a big difference in our environment with small efforts. The Hefty® EnergyBag™ program allows you to recover previously non-recycled plastics – like chip bags and juice pouches – and convert them into valuable energy resources.
