Do you love crafts but find by the time you get all the supplies, set everything up and get your kiddos in the mood to do this said craft, that it just isn’t worth the time, money and energy? This is how I feel sometimes. I find so many crafts on Pinterest and other mommy blogs, but most of them never end up happening. I do love that Lennox does lots of art and crafts at school, since sometimes it just doesn’t work out at home.
If you are anything like me, and you live in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area, then Gap may have a great opportunity for you! This month, select GapKids stores in stores in across the country will host Shine On Saturdays events – Family Craft Events (pretty cool huh?).
Saturday August 25, 2012
10AM – 1PM
GapKids @ Northpark
Central Expressway & NW Highway #738
Bring your kiddos and let them unleash their inner artist! These events all involve special art projects by Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag. The art projects are also all inspired by the GapKids and babyGap fall collection, including the best new 1969 denim – Jewel Box Skinnies for girls (the new skinny jean updated in bright stretchy denim) and Action Stretch Denim for boys (designed for play all day- it’s denim that’s made to move).
I took a look through Merrilee’s blog and found some great posts about some of the crafts they have been doing – they look so fun. They did some geometric canvas painting and some neat notebooks for back-to-school!
I love that Gap is doing this, and I hope to get there with Lennox, even if she is a little young – it would still be fun! Having these family events is a great way to get people into stores and I wish more stores did things like this! Real family fun 🙂
