The design-and-make activity has been practiced for a long time in early childhood and primary education settings, since it plays an important role in the holistic development of children. This paper reviews the research on the design-and-make activities of preschool and elementary school children from the following viewpoints: (1)the individual development and process, and (2)the socio-cultural approach focusing on peer interaction and the role of artifacts. The review reveals that the design-and-make process depends on child preference and the context in which it takes place and that it involves multi-modal thinking, such as talking, the handling of tools and materials, and bodily actions.
