Blue Ant Media-owned lifestyle net Makeful has added two original programs making their debuts to its lineup this summer, including Holiday Makeover (pictured) and Make it Big, Make it Small.

The Blue Ant Media-produced Holiday Makeover Father’s Day follows series hosts Alison, Denise and Adjoa – popular makers from the net’s digital community – as they lend their expertise in crafting, baking and decorating to create inspirational features that will help one family honor Dad.

Blue Ant’s Alex Sopinka serves as executive producer.

The series debuts June 19 at 8 p.m. EST/PST, with further episodes set to air in August, October and December.

Meanwhile, each episode of the multi-platform educational series Make it Big, Make it Small will feature a couple of nine-year-old children as they experience such activities as rollercoasters, go-karting and dinosaur museums in an attempt to reveal scientific facts behind each. Episodes culminate with a visit to an art studio where craft experts help kids construct hands-on DIY projects that tie into their newly learned scientific and technological theory.

The series is produced in-house by Blue Ant Media with VP of original content Samantha Linton serving as executive producer.

Make it Big, Make it Small premieres across Makeful on July 17 at 7 p.m. EST/PST, with 10 additional 11-minute episodes rolling out across its digital property.

“This summer, we’ve created a cross-platform offering that celebrates the season by inspiring families to get creative together,” said Vanessa Case, executive VP of content at Blue Ant Media, in a statement. “From crafting and baking to painting and decorating, our new lineup continues the spirit of creating one-of-a-kind, handmade goods that craft-enthusiasts of all ages will enjoy.”
