This program was so popular we are bringing it back! Personalize your FREE ceramic mug with a rainbow of Sharpie colors and then wait while it bakes (about 30 minutes + cooling time). Stencils will again be available in a variety of designs. Sharpie really lasts if you hand-wash your mug! There will be board games and UNO available to play while you wait.

Help us (gently!) break in our iPads in groups and use your choice from the iPad built in iMovie trailer templates. Choose from themed templates such as superhero, horror, romance, teen, & more!
