Crock A Doodle | Take Home Creativity |

Take Home Creativity
By Kate Barker, Photography by Lexa Chambers

In the face of the pandemic, Crock A Doodle in Canmore got creative. They offered curbside pickup, so everyone could still enjoy painting pottery while stuck at home. With the slow reopening of stores slated this month, Crock A Doodle decided to keep to their curbside pickup for the time being.

That means you can get creative or pick up some crafts for the kiddos to do in the comfort of your home.

So how does it work?

  1. Order your kit by calling the store or clicking here.
  2. Pick up the kit curbside.
  3. Get creative!

We loved this idea so much, we sent a kit home with a photographer. Here’s what happened:

It's fun. It's messy. It's a great way to spend the afternoon.

Needless to say, painting pottery with Crock A Doodle was a fun way to spend the afternoon. Have you found ways to stay active, support local and enjoy the mountains during the pandemic? Let us know!
