Make your own mini donuts!

This cool craft was an idea from the book “Tiny Treats” we saw at the American Girl store in Boston. My daughter Myriam and I had a blast making a bunch as gifts for her teachers. Tim Hortons graciously shared our photo on their Facebook Fan Page. You can see the photo amongst their Facebook photos at: (scroll past the Halloween 2012 photos).

Printmaking at Viva Vida

This workshop was part of my mixed media class for kids at The Viva Vida Art Gallery in Pointe Claire. We glued fun foam shapes, lace, twine, etc. to a bristol board base. We rolled acrylic paint over the entire surface or painted the shapes separately with different colours. We quickly placed a same-sized cardstock overtop and ran the two pieces through the pasta maker. The kids loved turning the handle and seeing what came out the other side!
