Explore, Create, Build, and Have Fun!

We’ve got the perfect antidote for too much screen time – get crafty!

Happily, you’ve got lots of options when it comes to creative exploration in the Lansing area. Not all of us were born with a dominant Pinterest gene. I know, most of my creations look like Nailed It came to life in my house.

That’s why I’m grateful when other people share their ideas – and their supplies – with my family.

Take a look at the big list below.

We’re sure you’ll find something to get your family’s creative juices flowing.
