Color Me Mine art studio is stocked with more than 600 ceramic items awaiting decoration, including cookie jars, plates, and vases. Fledgling artists pick the item they want to paint and decorate it with nontoxic, lead-free, and food-safe paint. The studio instructors then glaze the completed masterpiece before firing it in a kiln, sealing the paint job and smoking out any genies hiding inside it. Color Me Mine also hosts BYOB painting classes in its private party room, where instructors give step-by-step instruction that help students create their own acrylic canvas paintings.
As a young girl, Chef Kim's love of cooking was born as she watched her aunts and grandmother craft huge family meals. Today, at Chef Kim's Kitchen, she creates meals for customers who don't have the time or the inclination to cook. Before she starts cooking, customers fill out a culinary questionnaire to inform Chef Kim of food sensitivities and preferences. Meals arrive packaged in reusable containers, ready to heat, freeze, or build a fort with, and most are crafted with local and organic ingredients when possible.

Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne.
In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
