I’m super excited – not only is Jack going back to school in October (YAY!), but I am going to get help getting him excited about it with this neat event hosted by GapKids: “Unleash your inner artist! Join us for a series of special art projects by Merrilee Liddiard of Mer Mag. These 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).”

Jack LOVES art – has been drawing since he got a magnadoodle when he was 2 and he just recently had his first piece of artwork put on display in a local studio. An event where he gets to use art to prepare for going back to school is right up his alley! Not to mention that he’s also quite particular about his clothes and one of his favorite pieces is a skeleton hoodie we bought from GapKids before he started Kindergarten. I can’t wait to see what they have this year.

Here are the details for you guys if you want to check it out! Throughout August, select GapKids stores across the country will host Shine On Saturdays events. From creating geometric masterpieces on canvas using paint and tape to colorful, custom journals to get kids ready for back-to-school, the projects help kids express their creativity!
