CICOLAB invites kids ages 6-12 to our LearninGarden
weekly exploratory Kids Koolaboratory
sandbox playground learninground
circle of fun, games and doing stuff together

Kids can get ready for the Sunday session by doing one of these activities:
  1. Draw a silly, creative pen like Sacha's, above. To find out how, follow the Domestika doodle class listed below. The whole family can participate! Make sure to take a picture of it to post on our Pinterest art board or to share during the session.
  2. Interview an elder and turn the result into any kind of artwork.
  3. Fold an origami animal to show to the group. We have a whole Pinterest board full of ideas for you if you need inspiration or instructions.
  4. Get off of Netflix and listen to a educational podcast (Common Sense Media recommendations listed below). Sacha and Leila's favorite is "Snakes vs. Spiders" from Smash Boom Best.
  5. Get on our shared website and post pictures (see details below).
Ongoing Activities
FEATURED: Leila interviews her grandmother Beverly about growing up in the American South as a kid in the 1950's.
We have set up a shared Google account to help us collaborate using various platforms and tools. If you're not already in the loop, please request access.

To ensure security we prefer to share information on (relatively) secure channels, such as WhatsApp, Signal or Telegram.
We have started making a Google Site:
for the kids to update themselves with photos and links.

Join and edit the site:

Do you want to learn how to draw better? We are simultaneously taking an affordable art course together called "The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Doodles into Art" on and showing each other our drawings.
In a neverending quest to find things for the kids to do to occupy their brains without screen time, we have found a list of kids podcasts for the kids to review.


We are using Pinterest to collaborate on image collections and to get ideas. Most recently we have used it to collect origami animal ideas for our future animal zoo, but we also have boards on art, design, and baking. Use the same KooLab Google account to login.
