Cute as a button but up to no good! I turn around for a second and he’s digging up his daddy’s lemon tree !! Caught him just in time before he did any damage. #sorrymama #sebbydee
Gift certificates for birthdays, Christmas, or any other holiday celebrations to our TransformEd Creative Studio are better than your traditionally wrapped present(s)! You are giving the gift of creativity and of learning which is a priceless experience !! Not to mention the child gets to attend with any adult willing and able to participate with them. What a wonderful way to spend time together this winter !! No planning needed and no cleanup required. Just come and warm up in our studio with your loved ones !! We promise to make it feel cozy and have lots of fun !! (Gift cards are sold in $35+HST increments which equate to a one hour class). Thanks to everyone who has already emailed to inquire about them !! Will get back to you ASAP email@example.com 📸: @hello_sunshine_photo 💡 Idea inspired by my friend Marisa who wanted a gift certificate even prior to me owning the studio !!! @marisabenny
When I’m in the studio I feel so inspired !! Loving our crafty little Christmas tree !! 🎄 Check out my stories to get a glimpse into my holiday decor process. Still have a few ideas before it’s all revealed !!! I’m going to make our reading and relaxation house more festive. Any suggestions? It’s the one with the grey half door, window with flower box, white panelling, and wooden roof. I will post it in my stories for your help!! You can leave a comment below after you see it...
Simple finger painted paper ornaments for our creative 🎄 tree. We hung them with pipe cleaners, however, you can use ribbon, or even wire. This was made by a three year old with her Mama yesterday. I have been posting a lot of our infants and toddlers on my IG feed, but The TransformEd Creative Studio is really loved by all ages including the preschool, school aged children as well as the adults-parents/caregivers/volunteers !! I will have to give you a tour soon with our holiday decor !! It feels like Santa’s workshop 🎅🏻!! (A and Mommy painting @donatelli85)
We had the best time exploring icing sugar in the studio today overtop of none other than the Brooklyn Bridge. #itsthemostwonderfultimeoftheyear P.S. I could not get my son away from this sensory experience !!! (Cutest duo - N kept hugging Sebby and then continued to play @thadaze @angelavillanova)
Thankful for the amazing families and their email requests, as they continue to motivate our creative studio to keep refining our services! TransformEd is now providing gift certificates as holiday presents and birthday parties for children birth to 8 years old !! 📸: @clarkylaura (You can purchase a single pass for $35+HST during our Open Studio: Play and Create classes or any of our 6-12 week programs/photography packages). Now that I think about it, it’s kinda nice to provide an experience over a toy for Christmas ! Wouldn’t you agree?

Tip for group and individual paintings: Put large mural paper or neutral wrapping paper onto the ground. Allow the children to paint together for a collaborative art experience, but also offer them their own pieces of paper, cardboard or canvases. They can create directly on top of the group mural and not worry about the paint going everywhere ! All their beautiful marks will only enhance how it turns out !!
