The girls and I travelled alllllll the way downtown last week for an afternoon of arts and crafts celebrating the Kid Made Modern line by Todd Oldham at Target. Such fun! First of all, Target knows how to throw a party. But then, that doesn't surprise you, does it? The event was held at Todd's studio, and the halls were thoroughly decked with yummy food and drinks and enough crafts to keep a child busy for hours. Todd's line encompasses everything from ready-to-go "kits" (which include all the materials you need to make something FAB) to a la carte accessories like double-pointed crayons and fabric paints. Perfect presents for your budding artist!
On that note, the timing could not have been more perfect as Millie has really started to get into drawing and coloring, and instead of lovely line after line after line, she's drawing people now and oh, "Central Park" the other day. It's been so fun watching this side of her develop.
Lastly, I have to add that Mr. Oldham could not have been nicer... as we were leaving, he went running around trying to find a napkin for us as we took a couple peanut butter and jelly snowflake sandwiches for the subway ride home. And Vivian? She managed to sleep for the entire party but woke up 5 minutes before we left, with just enough time to take a picture and pick her nose at the same time (I'll still claim her).
'Tis the season to embrace your inner artiste!
