Our Annual March Break Tradition - Toronto Teacher Mom

Our Annual March Break Tradition

Tuesday, March 25, 2014


For the past four years, my friend and I get the kids together during the March Break for our annual tradition - painting pottery at Crock a Doodle. The kids love it and we enjoy watching their artistic talents mature year after year. My kids had an added bonus of painting during our Summer at Blue stay at Blue Mountain in Collingwood. The projects in the photo have yet to be kiln-fired and glazed but they still look cute, don't you think? If you live in Toronto and want to check out a Crock a Doodle studio, the nearest location would be in Oakville. But rumour has it there will a couple of studios opening up in Toronto soon! By the way, check out this cute idea for an Easter-themed mug

Do you have any March or spring break traditions?

    1. Yes, it's probably better to wait till he's old enough to sit still for longer than 5 minutes. I always have to finish my son's project and they're not cheap.

    1. It's definitely worth trying at least once. The hard part is trying to pick just one. The cupcake is practical because it's a trinket box - the top comes off.

  13. Very fun! We buy clay and do our own masterpieces at home, of course it's not fired clay. I don't even know that we have anything like this around. I know we use to in the last city I lived in and a friend and I made that our little get away spot.
