Totally Tubular Figurines - May 6, 2020
Similar to Forky from Toy Story 4, these totally tubular creations spread joy. Instead of disposing the center of the toilet paper rolls, they can be repurposed to make new characters or to bring the cast of your favorite cartoon to life. Let’s start making!
Tie-Dye Flowers - April 29, 2020
Create your very own forever garden with these beautiful tie-dye flowers. The best part is, you only have to water them once.

Transform into a cool character with these creative masks! Use your imagination to become any character – a fairy, a werewolf, or even a new creation that no one has ever seen before.
Abstract String Painting - April 15, 2020
We’re getting creative with a technique that turns string into your paintbrush. Let your imagination run wild as the potential is limitless for creating one-of-a-kind designs.
Shaving Cream Painting - April 8, 2020

Volcano Painting - April 1, 2020
This classic science fair project takes an artistic spin as we use the reaction to create a painted masterpiece! This activity may get messy so we suggest using a workspace that can easily be cleaned like a newspaper-covered table top or on a plastic placemat.
