Unleash your inner artist! GapKids Shine On Saturdays

It is no secret that I love fall. I just love it. Apples, pumpkins, leaves changing colors, you name it.

As summer is winding down, I feel the pace already quickening at our home - preparing for school time, weekend football games, and soccer and music classes for the kids. We're replacing our worn sandals with new sneakers and updating our fall wardrobes.

If you are doing back-to-school shopping this weekend, join select GapKids stores this Saturday for their Shine On Saturdays events. Your kids can participate in a series of special art projects.  From creating geometric masterpieces on canvas using paint and tape to making colorful, custom journals to get kids ready for back-to-school, the projects will help your little ones express their creativity. Designed by Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag, the projects were 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). This video explains it all:
