Mer Mag for GapKids: craft while you shop



gapkids mer mag shineon
Have you heard about GapKids crafting weekends? Brilliant.

For the next three Saturdays (starting tomorrow, August 11), you can stop by several GapKids stores around the country and there will be crafting going on. Lots of the country is getting geared for Back-to-School (it’s a season, just like Christmas. Heh.) and since you may be headed to the stores with kids in tow, they have crafting activities to keep little hands busy while you sneak a peek at school clothes.

I heard about the crafting fun at GapKids from our new contributor Merrilee Liddiard (aka Mer Mag). Mer designed the crafts for GapKids and if you can’t make it or your local GapKids is not participating, you can still play along at home as there are a number of crafts up on the GapKids’s Craft Facebook page.

Here’s the crafting schedule:

August 11th: Geometric Art
August 18th: Journal Making
August 25th: Animal Character Badges

These events will be taking place GAPKids stores in the following cities. The locations switch around each week and you should check the GapKids Event page for details:

New York
San Francisco

Congratulations Mer, and parents have fun!
