This month, I participated in the Atlanta Maker Faire again as part of Oscar Eastwood (i.e. The Society of Lady Makers). With rain looming, we were a little concerned about the turn out, but everything worked out great. We had a blast helping kids make miniature light-up houses, lighthouses, and critter pins.
Some of our critter magnets, and the sign for our letter writing workshop.
A few more of our critter magnets (in 3D printed wood), and a little bit of our workspace.
This year we had a few of our zen gardens and 3D scanned designs on display for kids to play with(in). I love the way the colors looked all together.
Again this year the hot glue gun was key. We even found some great glittery gold glue to use for magnet making.
This year we even had a tropical bird weathering the storm with us at our booth.
All in all it was a great experience to see kids get excited about making. We had a few repeat visitors from last year and it was neat to hear about how they ended up using their creations after the Faire. I learned a lot about what level of detail children are interesting in learning about, and how to keep my instructions short and sweet.
