Hmm! I've really enjoyed all the crafty things I've done at Swancon.

I got asked to design activities for children when I was at Scitech and they were all AMAZINGLY unsuccessful so take ay suggestion from me with a grain of salt. But if you want to do a 4 colour theorem colouring in competition I have a design you can use ;) The other craft thing I did was hexaflexagons, they turned out to be too conceptually complex not only for children but for most of the other demonstrators, but tetraflexagons might work better, especially with a geeky audience http://www.auntannie.com/Geometric/TetraFlexagon/

Thinking about what suits my tastes specifically...I'm an awkward grey area between amateur and professional artist, so while I'm not up to running Grown-up Art Panels I'm a lot better than most children, and like when I can help them out instead of making something just for myself. A few years ago I just drew dragons to order which was fun, some sort of drawing for each other thing could be good I guess? Kids drawing for adults and vice versa, or just a free for all? This sort of thing can also happen organically eg last year I spent most of the "make modelling clay creatures" panel making little neat eyes for the kids since they all had trouble with it. I'm not sure where to go with this idea but thought I'd mention it!

Oh also, when I did the dragons I had to look up a bunch of references, a dragon drawing panel with printed/cut out reference images (different kinds of dragons, dinosaurs, bat wings etc) might be cool? Or it might be one of those "child Sophie would have liked this, most other children would not" ideas :)
