Is this event good for kids?
This event is great for kids ages 5 – 105! We have a number of workshops that are well suited for younger children, such as DIY stamped wrapping paper, crayon melt ornaments, candle dipping, and the low-temp hot glue creation station with Laser Bits and Popsicle Sticks.
We also have advanced workshops for older kids, such as scroll-saw ornaments, leather punching keychains, the science of home-made sugar scrub, and learn-to-solder led pins. Adults are welcome to partake in ANY of the workshops – this is all all-ages hands-on making event.
If you have children younger than five in your group, they are most certainly welcome, however activities for the tiny-tots are limited and you may want to work on projects together.
