Denver Mini Maker Faire

Standard

Abigail went to her first Maker Faire today. It was my first Maker Faire too. This was also the first Maker Faire in Denver. To start off the show, we got a picture with R2-D2:

While wandering around we got to make different types of art. First we used a styrene paper plate as a plate in a printing press. Later Abigail got to make a sculpture out of colored junk.

Next, she built her own toy selecting parts from 4000 pounds of used and discarded toys.

She went on to paint part of a mural that other children assisted with and worked on.

A more creative day together I do not think we could have had. I got to stop at the SparkFun booth, and look forward to visiting there again tomorrow. My favorite booth was Mago’s Magic Shoppe, oddities and curios. It had the right flair to provide many of the props I will want when telling stories of a Lovecraftian nature.
