The Sonoran Glass School offers all sorts of glass-making classes for all ages, but if you have a budding Dale Chihuly on your hands with an equally precocious best friend, make an appointment to Blow Your Own. The kids are assisted with every step and have a few shapes from which to choose, like a chili pepper or an ornament. Prices range from $45 to $80, and you can pick up your piece a couple of days later. The assistants there work well with kids, and it's fun to give the kiddos an experience that combines art and science. The guys working at the school seem well-versed on answering all questions that begin with why and what, without sighing or saying, "I don't know." It's art, science and fun with the BFF.
