All-ages Valentine’s Day Fun

Thank you to everyone who came out to our All-Ages Craft Night!

We had lots of fun making Valentine’s Day themed crafts. We had several kits available including little robot love bugs, stuffed monsters and valentine cards.

Makers of all ages enjoyed learning about simple electronics by trying one of the two love bug kits. One love bug kit made light up blinkybugs inspired by obeyken’s instructable. The other kit included a small vibrating motor so participants could design their own little vibrobots.

We also brought back some of our favourite kits from past craft nights, including LED flowers, make your own felt monster kits and glovetopus kits.

Valentines Day fun for the whole family! Join us to make something special for your sweetie.

The craft projects will include robot love bugs, LED flowers, stuffed monsters and more!

Valentine Cards with the Letter Writing Club

YuKonstruct hosted a Valentine’s Day card making night with the Letter Writing Club.

We had 7 different card kits for participants to choose from, from relatively simple to fairly complex, but the most popular ones, by far, were the kits containing LEDs to make light-up valentines. The circuit stickers that made the incredible cards possible were provide by Chibitronics.

There’s still time for you to get in on the card-making action! The Letter Writing Club will be at (co)space on February 3, with card kits and typewriters for writing out your love letters.

We’re also hosting an all-ages Valentines Day themed craft night on February 11 from 6pm to 9pm. There will be lots more fun crafts for you to make for your sweetie.

Step-by-step instructions for assembling your own amazing cards are available on Instructables.
