Inspired by pareidolia, kids will make their own fictional characters using fruits, vegetables & solid spices as materials. The intention is to celebrate imagination: we grow up & tend to forget how beautiful is our life/ mind. After each one designs their own character we will display them as a long spread. Solid spices like cardamom, cloves, dried lemon, cinnamon will be given to create facial expressions. Only fruits with solid shell will be used. Like coconuts, watermelon, oranges, lemons, etc. No glue, just some toothpicks & a lot of imagination.

Goal to have fun get creative with whatever you have.

Art supplies who? Kitchen is magic.

Once done, visitors can take their little friends with them. The event is promoted for kids but adults will secretly enjoy it too!
