Holiday Gift Guide
By Laura Churchill Duke,

This Christmas, why not give a homemade gift? There are a lot of places you can go for kids to make something themselves. Start with the Clayground Studio in Wolfville! Kids can make a painted pottery piece, or older kids can try a fusible glass craft. Be sure to check the dates beforehand to find out when the last day is that the pottery will be prepared before Christmas!

The Firefly Makery, located in Bridgetown, is a store that promotes local crafters and artists from the Valley. A variety of workshops are offered with many geared towards children. They also sell children’s craft kits, which include everything to make the craft. Or check out my Pinterest Christmas board for lots of crafts to try at home! (

Kids have such a sense of pride when they can give you something they have made themselves! For more great ideas, visit
