DIY Workshops for Kids in Southeast Michigan

From candle making to ceramics, these spots will keep the kids busy and creative.

If outdoor winter activities are becoming a bit too frigid and you’ve exhausted the number of times you can keep your child entertained with movie nights and activities at home, we’ve got you covered. 

These DIY studios in southeast Michigan offer lessons and workshops that will keep your kiddo entertained for hours — plus they’ll provide the supplies and handle the clean up for you! Get out of the house and let your creativity run wild at these fun DIY studios.


This art studio offers art classes, camps and workshops for kids and parents of all ages. Try your hand at doodling, drawing or painting, or sign up for a more structured program for artistic kids who want to focus on a more specific element of painting or design. 

Art in Motion

Create your own beautiful piece of pottery during a drop-in workshop at Art in Motion. Choose from painting your own pottery, using molds to bring clay to life or learn how to throw clay on a wheel. 

The Bee’s Knees Pottery

The Bee’s Knees Pottery is so much more than just a pottery studio! Kids can paint their own pottery, but they can also paint a canvas, create a mosaic tile masterpiece and more. Check the studio’s calendar for the full list of offerings. 

Ceramics By You

Choose from hundreds of pre-made ceramic pieces and add your own creative touch with food-safe glaze. Your kiddo will love painting their own set of functional dishes, or decorating a ceramic statue. 

Urban Wick Candle Bar

Create your own unique candle at The Candle Bar Experience. Select your favorite fragrances, then take a seat at the candle bar where a scent designer will guide you as you create a one-of-a-kind scent and pour your very own candle.
