Are you making gifts or thinking about creative gifts this holiday season?
My friend Kim Moldofsky of The Maker Mom (and other fabulous blogs) hosts a monthly Twitter chat about STEM: science, technology, engineering, and math. This month’s chat also includes Arts. Don’t let “Arts” scare you. Everyone has a bit of creativity in them. I love making and receiving handmade gifts. What I love more are gifts that inspire creativity. Especially since I don’t have time to make gifts this year, as much as I’d love to.
Thanks to this month’s sponsor, littleBits, we’ll be talking about #MakeTheHoliday- sharing tips and ideas for homemade gifts and gifts that keep on giving. Join in on Twitter on this Thursday, December 6 at 9 PM Eastern, 8 Central, 7 Mountain and 6 Pacific using the hashtags #STEMchat and #MakeTheHoliday.
Check out the panelists for the chat:
Kathy Cerceri @KathyCeceri is the brains behind Crafts for Learning and is co-creator of the GeekMom blog and book, author of “Robotics” and other activity books for kids, About.com’s Guide to Homeschooling, and mom to two sons, 17 and 20. (Check out my review of the GeekMom book.)
Lisa Nelsen-Woods @condoblues When her technical writer, instructional designer, and DIYer powers combine she builds computers, fixes what’s broken, and teaches you how you can do it too on her blog Condo Blues.
Thien-Kim Lam (That’s me!) @ThienKim is a former costume designer who now channels her creative energy by upcycling clothes, sketching, and crafting with her kids. Check out her tutorials and general crafty goodness at My Cup of Creativi-Tea and her parenting adventures at I’m Not the Nanny.
littleBits is hosting a creative holiday challenge. It’s kind of like Design Squad for adults- dream up a creative project incorporating littleBits, sketch it out and submit the sketch to win. How easy is that?
There you have it. See you Thursday night!
