cool event to check out at GapKids this weekend!

This post is sponsored by GapKids. Check out all the fun Shine On activities at your nearest Gap store. For event dates and locations, visit Gap’s Facebook page and join the conversation on Twitter with hashtag #ShineOn.

I had the opportunity to write this very cool post about an event that's taking place at GapKids locations around the country! 

As you guys know, I am a creative and artistic person who believes in the power and importance of letting our children learn all about creative expression at a young age. 

Gap shares this vision because over the next two weekends in the Philadelphia area (and other areas, check Gap's site by clicking the logo above to find an event near you), they are putting on an incredibly cool event!!

Acclaimed artist and awesome blogger Merrilee Liddiard of mer mag is hosting Special Art Projects in select GapKids stores! These events were designed by Merilee Liddiard herself and were inspired by the GapKids and babyGap fall collections (which include the incredibly cute best new 1969 denim - Jewel Box Skinnies for girls (adorable new skinny jeans that come in bright stretchy denims (wish I could wear them)) and of course the Action Stretch Denim for boys (these jeans have literally been designed for playing ALL day, the denim is made to move - we love it!)). 

These events - called ShineOn Saturdays are designed to be fun and interactive for kids and families alike. They focus on education and FUN and you get to literally go into the store and participate in an art project with your kids! How great is that? From creating geometric masterpieces on canvas using paint and tape, to colorful custom journals that will get the kids ready to go back to school, these projects really focus on helping kids express their creativity. And seriously, how cool that they are designed and hosted by Merilee Liddiard??
