Best Party Place for the Girls: Out of Our Minds Art Studio
There’s nothing like the sight of a child’s little hand and growing mind at work. You’ll find plenty of that going on at the cute, colorful studio with the catchy name in Macungie called Out of Our Minds. Owner Angela Faidley plans a calendar full of fun, artistic activities for boys and girls all year long. You can even explore painting with your child in a Mommy and Me class, or choose from several themed painting-on-canvas options. Faidley also connects the dots with morning and afternoon session options that can be joined to create a full day-camp experience with a lunch period in the middle. All supplies and lunches are included in the class fees. So the next time you ask yourself what you can you do for your little girl’s next birthday or what you’re going to do to keep your creative son busy and happy this summer, you know a colorful and creative option.
