Aiden was still a mini man when we attended the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire in 2011 - and he still had fun. This year, we were excited to attend the Vancouver Mini Maker Faire for 2012 a few weeks ago, this time held at the PNE (a way better location). Given we had a newborn with us, our visit was short, but still fun.
Aiden was fascinated with the 3D printers and robots, but his heart was smitten by the pedal car that was on hand (he was thrilled to be able to go in it). He briefly made his own pin (he’s not the crafty type) and had a hot dog too, so it was a great event for him. There was a huge kids section this year with many interactive exhibits including a fun t-shirt painting station. Aiden isn’t super into crafts yet, so he didn’t want to take part, but it looked like a lot of fun.
I can’t wait for next year! I think Aiden will be even more into this event, able to participate more fully in the kids’ crafts and activities.
Disclosure: we were given a media pass for this event.
