Family Canvas Challenge

I absolutely love this project from the Art Pantry. The "right" way to do it is to have your whole family work on one canvas together. I decided to give everyone their own canvas because I was really curious to see how different everyone's style would play out.

It was so much fun and they turned out so well that my mom requested a true Family Canvas for her living room. I let her choose the color pallet and had my kids and their cousins go to town. Sticking to a color scheme was really fun and I think the end result was a little more my mom's style than the crazy color combos that my kids chose. Take a look!

If you try it, let me know how it went! You can comment here or tag @makermonkeyworkshop on social media. For more building and craft ideas, come check us out on Instagram HERE.

We do things differently.


Maker Monkey is about so much more than arts and crafts. The toys and activities we share with our kids now will influence the way they interact with the world around them in the future. As a kid, I enjoyed building my own dollhouse with my dad in his workshop as much as I enjoyed playing with the dolls that came with it. My parents taught me an important lesson about gender-equality simply by letting me be me.


As a female-founded building company, I am all about defying gender stereotypes and encouraging kids to explore their interests even when they are unconventional. 


Behind every Maker Monkey project is the desire to get kids to feel the sensitivity of an artist as much as the strength of a builder without categorizing either as being exclusively masculine or exclusively feminine.


We care deeply about the little souls we build with, which means we also need to take care of the world that they are inheriting. All Maker Monkey Building Kits are proudly handmade in Miami, FL from responsibly sourced upcycled wood and we use as little plastic as possible in our packaging. Our goal is to protect and preserve our resources while teaching our kids to do the same.

My Mantra is: "Do good doing what you love." In other words, be yourself and take care of the people and world around you. This takes courage, creativity... and sometimes a hammer.
