    Melting. It's a natural process that we can see every day: the ice in a glass of water, the butter on bread right after it’s toasted, the candles on a birthday cake. Let’s try to melt crayons into a work of art!

  • Visual aid of how to complete Suminagashi: Marbleized Painting

    Suminagashi is a Japanese art where you create your art on water first and transfer it to paper. It is beautiful and very relaxing to do. My kids loved it!

  • Visual aid of how to complete Pac-Man Inspired Glowing Ghost

    My kids recently discovered Pac-Man at a pizza parlour, and were fascinated by the retro video game. The pixelated ghosts glowing on the black screen gave me the idea to use electroluminescent (EL) wire to make light-up ghosts of our own! EL wire can be used to create bright outlines that will stand out in the dark. You can make your own glowing ghosts, and customize them however you like!

  • Visual aid of how to complete Liquid Watercolor Tie Dye

    Tie dyeing is a fun way to give new life to a faded old t-shirt, a dingy bag, or mismatched socks, while exploring different color combinations and patterns.
