Want to try your hand at virtual glass blowing? This is probably more fun for the kids, but I find myself playing around once in a while.
Click here: http://museumofglass.org/education/virtual-hot-shop/sbf/ to virtually make a macchia - a vessel like the one in the seen here made by Dale Chihuly - and learn a lot about glass blowing in the process.
The kids/you will have fun picking the colors they/you want to use for their macchia, clicking the heat button so their piece won't break, and applying the tools to the vessel. When finished, they/you can print out a badge with your name and a picture of your macchia. Check it out, have some fun, and see what you can make.
