Home learning with Makedo
Did you know that Makedo is an awesome STEAM learning resource for children of all ages?
That means, if you're navigating online learning because of temporary school closures or you’re choosing to homeschool, we're here to support your home learning journey.
Getting started with Makedo is simple and a great way to start is by watching our ‘how to’ tutorials and step-by-step guides here. We’ll show you how to cut safely, fold expertly and connect easily.
Then all that’s left for you to do is find some cardboard, grab your Makedo tools and start constructing.
If you get stuck for inspiration, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. Check out the Makedo HUB, Instagram and Twitter where you’ll find a world of endless possibilities: kids who’ve made a dragon costume, a robot, designed games with moving parts, created a scene from their favourite story or made a marble run in their backyard.
If you’d like even more guidance, explore the Make and Play tiles on our HUB, which walk you through some Makedo favourites: a dog, a plane, a playhouse with so many more to come.
Makedo construction naturally incorporates creative thinking skills and sets up problem-solving opportunities. Children can write on their plans or label their construction. They can use patterns, counting, division and fractions.
And let’s not forget STEAM. You can incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics into the process of a single Makedo project.
To help bring out the inner inventor in your child, try guiding them with some basic design principles. Support them to define their vision, imagine and brainstorm together, and then make it, test it, modify it and share with others.
Including us, we love to see what you make.
