Creating Paper Rollercoasters

On Jan. 18, the Petworth Children's department hosted the first session of Tween Creations!

We built roller coaster tracks for marbles using only colored paper and tape. Our participants cut out paper templates for the center tower, support shelves and narrow turns and then folded and taped the pieces together to make wonderful spiral roller coasters.

Be sure to check our calendar for more upcoming events for tweens!
