Mark your calendars for the final Mer Mag + Gap Kids event tomorrow: Animal Character Badges!!

I don't know what it is about this last craft for Gap Kids, but I'm just over the moon about these animal character badges. I'm loving the badge/button/award trend going on and Gap Kids Military Prep clothing is perfect for this. Or put it on any of these fantastic backpacks or a jacket from the French Muse collection. I'm dying at the possibilities of cuteness.
So if you haven't already marked your calendars for tomorrow, I would do so now and visit one of the following Gap locations to make one of these fun badges!!

  3. Hi, I'm Amy. I "met" you in the ALT class tonight. I have two boys also and am so happy to have found your site. I struggle with finding crafts to do with them that aren't too girly. (They are 5 and 2) So far, the most exciting thing we've done is convert a cardboard box into the Millineum Falcon :) Looking forward to following along here now.

    1. Hi Amy! So great to "meet" you tonight! I'd love to see that Millineum Falcon :). Sounds awesome! xo

  4. adorable! oh no, seems i'm a little late in finding your cute badges to make at the local gap... but glad i found your blog ;)

  5. Such a cool project. Love it!
