January Makerspace Recap and What’s Next

Makerspace Monday @ The PlaygroundJanuary Makerspace was full of yummy delicious scents of cacao powder and coconut that was chuck full of moisture. It had proven to be such blast to make, and like always, with a little science mixed into each ingredient!  We made Hot Chocolate Lip Balm and Chocolate Whipped Lotions all from 100% natural ingredients!

Next month, for our February Makerspace for those that sign up will get to dabble their fingers onto canvas; with scented paint, gold leaf foil, cheese cloth with-a-bit of anything goes, for a special Artistry and Design Workshop Spotlight. We will be joined with special guest Jill Wells.

As we look ahead to the month of April, get ready to experiment with cement, yes, that is correct, cement and plant pottery creations.

December Makerspace Monday Recap and What’s Next

Makerspace Monday @ The PlaygroundOn December 13th music filled the air as hot chocolate was served with a candy dish filled with yummy marshmallow chocolaty treats. The Cinnamon Salt Dough Ornaments were at the top of our night! It was such a blast mixing and blending the different textures of salt, flour and spiced aroma cinnamon! We also made gingersnap ornament cookies. Each edible crunchy cookie was drizzled with frosting and sprinkles of candy. Because they tasted so incredibly scrumptious not many of these Cookie Ornaments will make it to the Christmas tree. Smiles found their place on many faces as Miles and his mom stopped by for a visit. They created the sparkling Wood Slice Reindeer Ornament and Jingle Jangle Wreaths. What a wonderful night of fun, Happy Holidays to you and your family! We cannot wait to this all over again next year!
