Things To Do With the Kids in the Summer : Sawdust Festival

Being artsy!

Being artsy!

Week 1 of Summer Break is in the books. So far we’ve enjoyed sleeping in, swimming lessons, and a whole lot of spending time together. Next week we’re gearing up for some adventure which includes beach trips, Legoland, museums, and more!

One place that we plan on hitting up is the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. This arts and crafts extravaganza runs from Friday, June 26th to August 30th, and is open daily from 10am to 10pm. We go every year and have an incredible time. The kiddos look forward to exploring the different booths, trying out the free children’s art spot, and working with a potter’s wheel/ceramics. One on one instruction is free of charge. If you would like to glaze your creation it is $8. There are also a variety of free workshops in Studio 1 for kiddos 7 and up.

It’s a great Summer activity. To learn more about the festival or to purchase tickets, head here.

Wordless Wednesday: Sawdust Festival Fun

My little artist

This past weekend we took the family to the Sawdust Festival in Laguna Beach. The kiddos had a great time and as I shared earlier in the month the festivals has some fantastic free classes that the entire family will enjoy. My daughter and son both took the free pottery class and they can’t wait to take another one.

To learn more about the festival head and the classes head here.
