Welcome to TinkerLab!


TinkerLab is a Drop-In Children's Creative Studio with a focus on creating, collaboration and getting messy! We offer exciting hands-on activities and incorporate science, technology, engineering and math activities using a variety of mixed-media materials to create, explore and discover.


Located in the heart of Milton, TinkerLab invites children 0 - 10 years of age to explore the world around them through a hands-on approach that promotes playful learning. Also offering a variety of drop-in programs, registered classes, birthday parties and special events, TinkerLab welcomes families with young children to join us in discovery. 

We Believe In

Saying YES to MESS!

Focusing on the process of creating, not the finished product. 

Making art a joyful experience.

Providing lots of time for children to carry out their plans.

Allowing children to explore the materials.

Taking responsible risks.

Letting the child take the lead.

Using MORE paint, MORE glue, MORE colours!

Our Events


TinkerLab events offer hands-on, engaging activities for children and their families.


We incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in our activities  so children can design and create beautiful and unique works of art.

Drop In Every Day!

No need to register!


Tinkerlab is designed to be a drop in creative space for young children, 0 - 10 years of age. We are open every day for drop in play. Just like an indoor playground, parents bring their children to our studio and let them create. We always have a variety of paints, mixed media art materials, and crafty items available for artists to use. 

Not sure what to do with the materials? Let your child explore! There is no rule about how the materials are used. Children learn so much from free form experimentation - let them enjoy making a mess! 


STEAM Nights

EVERY Friday Night 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

4 - 10 year olds



Get messy! Get creative! All artists will have open studio time, dinner and take home their creations. Drop off any time after 5:00 pm. Every week we host challenges, make slime, engineer robots or create explosions. 

*Registration is required by 8:00 pm Thursday evening. Email info@tinkerlabforkids or call 905-636-4080 to confirm your spot.

Escape Room Challenge

Participants will work together to look for clues, solve puzzles and crack codes to "escape" the studio. Once complete, participants will create their own challenges for staff to escape! Full day campers will also create art pieces and, of course, make their own slime.
