I was invited to bring my family to Make Meaning in Scottsdale and check out what they have to offer. I went with my mom and my youngest son and let’s just say we had a pretty *sweet time!
Here are the activities that they offer:
- Soap Making
- Pottery Painting
- Ceramic Painting
- Glass Art
- Candle Making
- Cake Decorating
We decided on trying the soap making and the cake decorating. The cake decorating is where the *sweet time comes in.
My son got the silicone mold that has 4 spaces to fill. First, he went to the “wall of soap” and chose some fun soap shapes to put in his soap molds. They have so many shapes to choose from like robots, dinosaurs and gold fish. After that, he made his way to the tables that were designated just for soap making. He arranged the shapes in the molds and even had a chance to create some letters that he placed in the molds as well. When he had his designs just right, we made our way to the soap counter where and employee filled the molds with liquid soap. He even had a chance to pick out a fragrance for his soap. Some of the choices were apple pie, freshly washed man and dirt. Yes, dirt! He went for the freshly washed man. The soap needed to set up for about 30 minutes in the fridge so that gave us plenty of time to work on our next project…Cake Decorating!
The three of us each received our own cake and we decided to spray them with an edible spray paint. My mom and I chose silver and my son went for green. We picked out some fun shapes and candies for our cakes and we also received colored fondant to make our own shapes. My mom and I went for a pretty classic looking cake but my son decided to go crazy with the decorations. But you know what? That was totally okay with me. He was having a blast and he was getting creative. By the way, the cake tastes amazing! We cut into at soon as we arrived home and it was a big hit!
Make Meaning is perfect for kids and adults. They offer parties for just about any size or you can just drop in during business hours. I’m pretty sure they are going to get busy during the summer. It’s the ideal place to bring the kiddos to keep them busy and especially when it’s too hot to play outside.
Make Meaning is located at the Scottsdale Quarter, Scottsdale Road and the Greenway Hayden Loop.
