We ran Skill Toy Clinics each week and the results were awesome. Filling up eleven hours of meaningful, fun programming five days a week can be challenging. Flow Circus has taken care of so much for us in the careful and intentional planning that went into the program guide. I highly, highly, highly recommend ... Flow Circus

Flow Circus Teen Kits offer a dynamic and interactive way to ignite curiosity in tweens and teens. Kids will want to pick up and play with a variety of props that can be spun, balanced, and tossed. Start a club that meets regularly or make the props available for kids to work independently. Kick-off your program with a Flow Circus workshop or performance and use the kit to keep the teens engaged and playing year after year.
Both kits include a 65 page program guide and set of videos specifically created by Flow Circus to help start and maintain a Skill Toy Club at your organization. Based on many years of teaching skill toys to thousands of tweens, teens, and adults, Flow Circus has developed lesson plans emphasizing 21st century skills such as problem solving, goal-setting, and collaboration. Also includes activities such as Skill Toy Bingo, 60 Second Challenges, and other fun programming ideas!

Skill Toy Kit Introduction
Because of this program, teens will be able to:
Develop literacy and research skills – Because they want to learn more about the props and how to manipulate them, teens will visit the library more frequently and have fun while learning research skills. (reading list)
Create healthy, active lifestyles – Teens will learn new skills that encourage physical activity, provide stress-relief, boost self-esteem, and develop social skills.
Improve the image of teens in the community– Adult community members often have preconceived notions about teens and their behavior. This program will give teens an opportunity to engage members of the community in a positive, constructive way.
Skill Toy and Juggling Clubs are designed in a way that the initial investment yields years and years of benefit. The props selected for the Juggling and Skill Toy Kits are high quality and durable. The program guide and videos provide the resources to teach the skills and run a variety of related programs that will keep the teens coming to your program. The initial group involved in the program then serves as mentors. Their contagious enthusiasm and cool skills attracts new club members that they can then introduce to the skill toys.
Other benefits of the program on your teens and the community:
Teens that normally do not get much attention become “super stars” because of their new skills. This visibility among peers improves self-esteem and self-confidence.
Teens link the memory of learning skill toys which creates a positive association with learning in general creating the foundation for a life-long habit.
Teens take a leadership role by providing demonstrations or exhibitions for the younger children in the community.
Skill toys benefit the community by providing a common ground for students from a variety of backgrounds to come together in a creative, skill based form of play.
Teens engaged in the community in a positive way will attract attention. It will leave a memorable impression on community members that your organization offers engaging programs.
Teens juggling and playing with skill toys can add a playful atmosphere to other events your organization hosts.
