Make your Minecraft CREEPER head at the McAllen Mini Maker Faire Booth at Expo!

McAllen Mini Maker Faire - Creeper 3

 

The Maker Faire is coming to McAllen! Visit the McAllen Mini Maker Faire; learn about the Maker Movement and make a Creeper head on Saturday, April 20. The McAllen Mini Maker Faire booth will be giving away the materials to create a cardboard head of the Minecraft character the Creeper.  Kids, accompanied by their parents, are invited to come make their own Minecraft character using the materials provided.  The booth will provide kids with a cardboard (12in x 12in x 10 1/2in,) a template and a choice of crayons or acrylic paint to make their creeper head. This will be available only to the first 200 kids who visit the McAllen Mini Maker Faire Booth.  The Expo will be held at the McAllen Convention Center on April 20 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Maker Movement began in 2006 in San Mateo, California and has expanded nationwide. A Mini Maker Faire brings together families and individuals to celebrate the Do- It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and showcase all kinds of incredible projects. At Maker Faire, you’ll find arts and crafts, science and engineering, music, and water but what makes this event special is that all these interesting projects and smart, creative people belong together. They are actively and openly creating a maker culture.

The McAllen Mini Maker Faire is scheduled for June 22 from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at the McAllen Creative Incubator. For more information on the Maker Movement call Eduardo Millet at (956) 682-2871 or emillet@mcallenchamber.com
