A child shows early signs of creativity by artfully spilling ice cream and denying that a pacifier is a pacifier. Encourage cubism created with Play-Doh with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of plaster crafts at Plaster Palace Craft Center in Fleming Island. Plaster Palace Craft Center is not open on Mondays or Tuesdays; today’s Groupon is good for ages 18 months and older.
Plaster Palace Craft Center helps kids of all ages knead creations from imagination to reality within the confines of their brand-new, creativity-catalyzing plaster-craft studio. Young artistes pick one of more than 175 molds from towering, pastel-colored shelves, choosing from themes such as animals, superheroes, and 19th-century industrialists. Having settled upon their premade canvas, children take to dynamic decoration aided by eager artists’ tools including paint, paintbrushes, glitter, and glaze. Since pieces are made of plaster, they don’t require firing in a kiln before heading home with their creators; a simple glaze renders them ready to go.
