Curious Jane x Denver is beyond excited to offer in-person camps at Graland Country Day School the week of June 29th and July 6th. We are even more excited about our new class, Light It Up! This class teaches young inventors how to construct circuits with light-up elements and incorporate them into creative projects. Campers use accessible yet remarkable materials (like copper tape and electrically conductive paint) to engineer their creations. Projects include light-up quiz boards, mini-constellation maps, LED cards, simple glowing accessories, and more!

⚡️We're super excited to introduce you to our favorite new animated series, The Paper Girls Show!✨

The Paper Girls Show tells the story of two best girlfriends who find ideas for their inventions in both the Real World and in *Confetti* — a magical land where everything and everyone is made of paper... and imagination runs wild! The characters find themselves solving all sorts of challenges from fashion-emergencies to environmental issues, and everything in between. Their creative solutions involve all sorts of fun and inspiring STEAM projects including paper circuitry, glow-in-the-dark clothes, a fingerprint security scanner and so much more!

We are *so* excited to have partnered with this amazing organization to produce Paper Girls-inspired DIY videos! The featured projects bring the themes in the animated series to life with step-by-step instructions using paper and other STEAM-related crafts.

The first six shows just launched this week and an additional episode will appear each week over the next six weeks. We hope you'll watch and enjoy — and also be inspired to create and make your own! Check out @papergirlstv for all the links to the episodes, DIY videos, PDF downloads, and more!

💡We can’t wait to see what you create! ⭐️

🌎 In honor of Earth Day, we're sharing one of our favorite Eco-Happy projects: DIY Seed Bombs! Make your own and toss them outside wherever you want some colorful wildflowers to grow + bloom. 🌺🌸🌼🌿🍀

Maker Checklist:
• construction paper (scraps or recycled is best)
• tissue paper (recycled from a gift)
• small square of cheese cloth
• wildflower seeds
• immersion blender and jar

How-To:
1. Cut or shred both types of paper into small bits – you'll need a ratio of about 2:1 construction paper to tissue paper.

2. Put shredded paper in a tall jar (that fits your immersion blender) and just cover with warm water. Let soak and blend thoroughly.

3. Add seeds to the pulp mix, and stir.

4. Scoop out or pour the pulp into cheesecloth. Wrap it up and squeeze out the excess water.

5 . Mold into a ball and set to dry. Depending on the amount of water in the seed bomb (and the humidity in the air) it may take 2 days to dry thoroughly.

6. Once dry, try your hand at Guerilla Gardening by tossing your seed bombs anywhere outside that could use a touch of color... then check back to see your garden grow!

Did you know you can regrow some veggies? We had great success with our scallions and romaine lettuce hearts. We also got our fennel and carrot tops to sprout some new greens! Just place your cut veggie ends in a clear glass with a bit of water and leave in a sunny spot. Check every day and replace with fresh water if needed. You should see your scallions shoot up right away, and your lettuce will begin to grow after a few days. Veggie regeneration — try it!

04/01/2020

Black out poetry is a fun way to be creative and show off your personality. Each of us started with the same thing (text from a home decor catalog rescued from the recycle bin 🙃... swipe through to see the original!) but the results are totally unique.
1...meditative doodle... Elissa is most relaxed when doodling so naturally her poem is a combo of words and graphic pen marks.🖋
2...keep it simple... Samantha’s poem proves you don’t need to get fancy to have a successful outcome. Sometimes simple and straightforward is best!🖊
3...rainbow bright... Alia used an array of tiny masking tape to turn her blackout poem into a colorful work of art.🌈
4...shimmery sparkle... Paola let her personality shine with her favorite materials - shiny sequins, sparkly bits + bobs, and silver glitter!✨
5...cut and paste... Caroline cut the lines of text into strips and rearranged them in a new order to form her unique poem.✂️

There are no rules for black out poetry... and we can’t wait to see what you create! Collect some old magazines or catalogs and some pens (markers, tape, and/or any other crafty bits!) and tune in LIVE *tomorrow afternoon at 3* to make your very own black out poem with Alia!
