Creating Chicago History: Making Outreach Craft Activities Meaningful
Karp, Madeline
Journal of Museum Education, v37 n3 p81-90 Fall 2012
When it comes to having a traveling outreach activity for a museum, a craft can seem like the perfect solution. It can seemingly be all things at once--educational, quick and fun. But, if poorly constructed, crafts can also have serious fallbacks. Using the Chicago History Museum and the Millennium Park Family Fun Festival as a case study, this article discusses what goes into designing an effective craft, and how museums can make the most of crafting at an outreach event. (Contains 14 notes.)
