November Makerspace Monday Recap and What’s Next

Makerspace Monday @ The PlaygroundOn November 8th everyone discovered what goodness really tastes like as we mixed together only a few ingredients and made Scrumptious Cinnamon Bites. YUM! The Makerspace room smelled AMAZING! With the air filled with the scent of spice and pumpkin, it was only fitting to design our 7-Days of Gratitude Wreath. The table was filled with all types of fall treasures; textured leaves, gourds, pumpkins, acorns, twine, ribbon, burlap, and even a sparkly poinsettia was part of the design. The creative juices were flowing as the burlap wrapped tightly around the wire wreath. However, the most important part of this night was our time spent together! After all the glue was added and fall pieces put into place, we all look forward to next month’s Makerspace!

Next month, on December 13th an old-time favorite has been requested once again, Cinnamon Salt Dough Ornaments, Secret Hot Chocolate Recipe, Wood Slice Snowman or Reindeer Ornaments, Beautiful Book Angel Ornaments, Jingle Bell Surprise, and more!!
