A child shows early signs of creativity by artfully spilling ice cream and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Foster imaginative minds with today’s Groupon to Dragonfly Shops & Gardens in Orange. Choose between the following options:
- For $75, you get a private party for up to six (a $150 value).

Housed in a cozy 1920s home, Dragonfly Shops & Gardens stocks an eclectic variety of works created by local artisans and hosts DIY classes for all ages. In the beading basics class ($30 plus materials, which start at $2), beaders band together for two hours on Tuesday mornings to complete projects ranging from earrings and necklaces to bracelets and ultra-feminine beer helmets. A beginner’s mosaic tiling class ($55 plus $20 for materials) teaches creatives of all levels of skill and glee in smashing tiles to compose one-of-a-kind picture frames, trays, and stepping stones. Or delve into the dirt with a class on growing edible flowers and greens ($10 plus $5 for materials). Attendees can sip fresh coffee or cool lemonade.
Alternatively, kids can host five crafty comrades during miniature fairy garden parties, during which partygoers create potted gardens with mini wooden birdhouses, dirt, rocks, plants, and acorn cellars. Party sessions lead whippersnappers age 3 and older through artfully adorning aprons, tote bags, accessories, and unsuspecting older siblings.
