Hands on Fun with Garden State Discovery Museum and A.C. Moore

I was recently invited to hang out with fellow local Jersey bloggers at the Garden State Discovery Museum for some Hands on Fun! We had the opportunity to check out what’s new and learn about their new partnership with A.C. Moore! 


First off I gotta say, The Garden State Discovery Museum (GSDM) has a lot of new things and cool things happening! I love that they are always looking for ways to celebrate families and inviting them to have a good time. GSDM also is great at partnering with local businesses like Silver Diner and A.C. Moore ( ya I learned they’re South Jersey Local!!!)

Milly’s Which Craft Art Studio #HandsOnFun


GSDM opened up Milly’s Which Craft Art Studio earlier this year and it’s probably my new favorite thing about the place! My kids are crafty and so am I. We don’t have enough crafty opportunities outside of home and school. I was happy to learn A.C. Moore partnered up to hook up the space with all kinds of supplies so kids and parents can come in and create. 


I learned that the craft studio is a named after the owner’s mama who was an artist and had her own studio by the shore. Some of her art is sprinkled throughout the studio giving us all kinds of inspiration and something beautiful to look at.  Over all the space is large and even available for parties!


I loved being able to get crafty in the studio.  A.C. Moore had their Craftologist on hand to share some great crafts with us.  I look forward to sharing with you all soon! 


I got right on Snapchat like I usually do to share the space. Yall know Snapchat is my jam (follow me @realrubydw)


We made these super cool little tins and I was like OMG this screams Day of the dead and they were so easy to make so stay tuned for that! 

We were given a swag bag with an A.C. Moore gift card. I picked up some cute crafts to do with the kids as well as supplies for future crafts.

These Bright Minds craft kids were $1 and so cute and easy for kids to do on their own.  


At check out I noticed one of my receipts had an offer for a freed kids admission to the GSDM.


My kiddos loved making the kits!
