Design Your World: Kids Winter Learning Challenge

You can use art and design to express yourself, solve a problem and inspire other people. What will you create? Your own fashion line? A picture book? How about a community mural?

We're challenging kids to design and create over winter break with Chicago Public Library's Winter Learning Challenge from December 17 to January 7.

To complete the challenge:

  • Read (books, magazines or websites) for 20 minutes a day for at least five days.
  • Complete an activity and share what you discover and create.

Keep track of your progress on the Winter Learning Challenge log (Spanish Winter Learning Challenge log). Return your completed log to any CPL location by January 14 to receive a prize.
