APL Children's Take & Make Kits

Full Description

Take & Make Kits require pre-registration online and are available while supplies last. You must register online for each kit separately for each child.

Kits can be picked up through curbside pickup or at the Children's Desk during open hours on the dates listed under each kit. If you choose to pick up your kit on Saturday, it will only be available through curbside pickup (11 a.m. - 4 p.m.). Please call the Children's Desk at 214.509.4906 or the Information Desk at 214.509.4913 to schedule your kit pickup.

When registering for Take & Make Kits, please note the following:
- Confirm that the kit is for your child's age. Kits have designated ages based on their respective difficulty and the developmental ability required to complete the activity.
- Duplicate registrations with the same child's name and age will be deleted.
- Pickup will be available during the date range in each kit's description. Kits unclaimed after the scheduled pickup week will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.
