DIY Makers Camp for Kids

Hello there makers! It’s been a HOT summer here in Arizona and I’ve been having fun finding things for us to do to not only keep us busy but keep us cool. When I found out about Pinspiration’s DIY Makers Camp for Kids, I knew that my daughter would LOVE to attend.


The summer camp is a week long for 3 hours a day and each day the kids are creating something new.



Lots of active participation and engagement in a studio full of craft and art supplies. Talk about the perfect place to let your kids creative juices flow!



A few of the projects my daughter made and came home with were: a teepee, an art caddy, a magnetic dancing doll, shaving cream art, a Tic-Tac-Toe game, and a painted tile.



Each day/week the projects change, so you can register your children for multiple weeks if you want! And we loved the camp teachers… they were so sweet and helpful and patient with all of the kids.



They also listened to a story, did science experiments, colored, painted, played games, and made new friends.


Have you been to Pinspiration yet? It’s a DIY, art and craft studio that has rotational, Pinterest-inspired crafts and projects. I tell you about the top 3 reasons you should visit Pinspiration HERE and we also had a Back To School Party at Pinspiration last year that you can check out HERE.


Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Snapchat (@mineforthemakin) so you can catch the behind the scenes of all the fun things we do! Here’s our Facebook Live of our first day at camp at Pinspiration in case you missed it!

Pinterest Feature Friday

Hello friends and welcome to another fun week of Pinterest Feature Friday! Every week Bev, Michele, Malia, and I comb through the Pinterest Master List to find a new pinner to feature on our blogs! It’s a fun way to find new pinners to follow and new pins to pin. So if you love Pinterest as much as we do, you must join us!


This week we are featuring the Pinterest boards of Jenn from Peas and Crayons!


Jenn has 149 boards and over 43 thousand pins!! And let me tell you… they are GOOD. So let’s dive into some of my favorite boards…


Jenn writes and shares healthy, veggie packed recipes on her blog, Peas and Crayons. Her food looks delicious and beautiful. So you better believe I pinned all the things on her Peas and Crayons Recipes board.


I am all about DIY projects, so I love Jenn’s Fun Projects + DIY board. It’s full of crafts and projects I’d love to do. Especially that washi tape keyboard!


Did someone say Cookie Monster? Jenn is my hero… She has an entire board dedicated to delicious cookie recipes! I’m going to go ahead and say thank you, though I’m not sure my thighs will after I’ve made my way through this board!


Though I’m not the best at gardening, I’m determined to have a beautiful garden and a green thumb someday! Luckily Jenn has an entire board dedicated to a not so savage GARDEN.


I love all the things Jenn has pinned to her Fashion Inspiration board. Lots of great outfits, jewelry, and purse eye candy!

Great boards, right?! Be sure you check out the rest of Jenn’s boards, but after we take a look at some of my favorite pins!


I am constantly dreaming up what my next kitchen in our new house will look like. I fell in love with the light fixtures, open shelving, and tiled backsplash in this kitchen from Planete Deco.


Of course my eyes were immediatly drawn to this room… it does belong to the talented Joanna Gaines (featured on Design Mom). The floors, wall color, and exposed beams give me all the heart eyes.


My favorite fruit ever is pineapple so naturally I love all things pineapple. Isn’t this pineapple gift jar from Yesterday on Tuesday the cutest thing ever?! What a fun gift to make for a teacher!


These hanging herb mason jars from Domestically Speaking are not only pretty but they are super practical and convenient. I can’t wait to add them to my new kitchen!


Doesn’t this Black Bean Veggie Burger make your mouth water?! It’s summertime here in Arizona so I am ready to get my grilling on and this burger from Peas and Crayons is first on the list!

Thanks for linking up your boards to our Pinterest Master List, Jenn! Excited to get my pinning on and try out some of those delicious recipes you have pinned.

And if you haven’t linked up your Pinterst boards with us, DO IT! You know you wanna.


Have a great Memorial weekend, y’all!
