 S  Stamped Embroidery


Research* published by the National Library of Medicine and the National Center for Biotechnology Center showed that arts and crafts activities are great options that help manage emotions and anxiety in youth caused by time experienced during the pandemic while they manage their own developmental milestones.  We have offered our services successfully virtually during the pandemic time to friends and families near the city of Sunrise and surrounding areas, at the local community events like Earth day, and at some aftercare  programs.  It is also being offered in the Museum of Science and Discovery and local community events outside of school.

Kitchen Art - Multicolor Jello


All you need is a little of time and few ingredients: gelatine, different colors of sugar free jello and condensed milk.  Multiple layered color jello can be made with a variety of delicious flavors, and can also use coconut oil condensed milk rich in manganese which is great for connective tissue.  Just need a refrigerator, and about 15 minutes for each layer in to allow for the refrigerator to do the work 😊then cut it into pieces and there you have a fun snack to share with the kids, including adults who enjoy simple, sweetly delicious & fun to make snacks.  Contact us for more information on kids dessert cooking classes at your local community center, home or at your next family or school based event.
