Hands-on activities for Children and Adults

We enjoy looking through craft and cook books, as these inspire us to try different activities and inspire our own ideas. During the March Break we used a few DK books such as the Maker Lab outdoors, Cooking Step by Step, and the Sewing book as inspiration to do crafts, bake, and sew!

Register for STEM Summer Camp offered all across Ontario 

My children spend some of their summer vacation being part of summer camps. This is a great way to be active, build skills, and make fun memories growing up. This summer they are excited to attend STEM camp

DIY Embroidery Top Wooden Stool

We wanted to a customize and make our own DIY wooden stool with a soft cushion top that can be used as an extra seating, a table, or a footstool. The colours we used are inspired by our love for Moroccan and Bohemian designs and colours. We feel this gives the punch of colour we want to make the interior of our home feel brighter even during the long winter seasons!

Embroidered Crazy Patchwork

embroidered crazy patchwork
I have been working on a crazy patchwork surface to use it as the cover for a DIY stool we are working on. For this patchwork surface, I used the Crazy Patchwork method that uses random shapes of cloth attached together. Crazy patchwork is a lot of fun to do, as we do not have to cut each material using a pattern or measurement.
