Library as Incubator had a great post about a new IMLS-funded project between Instructables (a maker-themed website) and libraries. They are curating projects that will translate well to a library environment in a new, searchable and user-friendly Make It @ Your Library site. You can limit the results based on type of project, age group, cost, and amount of time it takes. I found everything from a popsicle stick harmonica to creating circuits with conductive paint to a DIY Smartphone Film Scanner.
Tiny Tips for Library Fun informed me about a new resource for sharing school-age ideas, like Flannel Fridays for the school-age set. It's called Thrive Thursday. It's brand new, and depends on people like you sharing ideas!
