The girls getting glitter and glue on your floor rather than mine? I’d pay for that. Wait, I have paid for that! A month ago it was an art class making cards. A few weeks ago it was floral jamming at Tallensia Floral Art. And I paid again. This time it was an ornament workshop at Mirth. And they were all worth it.
Benefits of these workshops? They’re equipped with the proper tools. The space is suited to the activity. And they’re structured. Unlike a craft session at our casa–I’m trying to cook, or trying to find something to fill in for floral tape, or just want some quiet time. It gets chaotic, disorganized, then we lose focus and interest. And then there’s still the mess to clean.
Mirth hosts some really nice workshops for kids, this was our first. But first let’s talk shop, their shop.
Sweetness in an old 1960s wooden stool factory. A wonderful selection of kid things, me things, gift things, art things, fun things, sassy things, furniture things. And they’ll whip up a little latte for you to sip while strolling through the many wonderful displays. You will certainly want to stroll so not to miss a single detail.
Now the workshop. It was situated in the store, so there was wonderful kid-energy happening in the space. It was perfectly suited for the girls, a felt Christmas Tree. Everything was prepared and ready the moment we arrived. And we now have these charming little trees in our flat. Can you say O Tannenbaum?
