Once again the Machine Shed has more to offer than just a good meal. I've always enjoyed the gift shop for it's unique offerings. The farm antiques lining the walls are always fun to look at and wonder what they were used for. The food is good, especially the Sunday brunch, and the portions huge.
I mentioned a craft demonstration there in April and thought it was a good way to add extras to an already interesting meal experience. We don't go to Machine Shed too often and haven't seen the demonstrator since, but we were there yesterday and saw something new.
A pleasant young woman hosts a "Kids Night" at the Shed every Tuesday night from 5:00 - 8:00, and has been doing it for over 6 months. Last night I made Playdoh out of real dough. Sometimes having fun is too easy. Just mix flour, oatmeal and water to the consistency of clay and you can shape it and let it harden, or seal it in a bag and keep playing with it.
Hey, adults can have fun too! Watch for "Soapy Snowmen" on the 22nd and "Sweet Treat Surprise" on the 29th.
