For enviromentally-consciencious Toronto families who value hands-on learning experiences... is an extracurricular program, endowing children with good ol' fashioned Maker knowledge by furthering their DO-IT-YOURSELF skillfulness with a strong emphasis on sustainable living approaches

+ was founded with the idea of passing on traditional maker skills and the Do-It-Yourself mindset to the next generation. Our idea slowly evolved into using fun and educational activities (with a crafty-spin) to empower kids with practical skills that encourage environmental responsibility, independence, and creativity.




D.I.Y.kidsTM values doing things the old way and sustainable-living. By taching the next generation of future 21st- centuary artisans, we seek to ensure our natural resources are used efficiently with the least impact to our planet.




In the age of digital emdia & mass production,  we aim to bring self-sustainability awareness back to the Home, to our Families... where it ALL begins.
