Our options may be limited in terms of things we can do during the pandemic, but there are things to do if you look hard enough. Did you know you can make your own dagger, knife, magic wands and more in Frankenmuth? I had no idea until now.

  • Family Forged Cross Experience - A cross made by you & your loved ones, designed for hanging on a wall. Cost: $175 dollars.

Times and exact days of classes vary, you can get all of that information here, as well as individual class descriptions. This is the real deal in terms of you becoming a blacksmith. As you will see in the video above, this experience takes you back in time, and the fact that you will be crafting something that you can keep forever is awesome.

You can book your experience online, if you go be sure to send me some pictures of what you make, and how you liked it. When you are finished making your dagger or knife, I recommend heading over to Tiffany's Food and Spirits for a burger and a beer. Enjoy!
