How will you celebrate Grandparents Day this weekend? Create new memories for grandma, grandpa and your little one with these three activities that everyone will enjoy.
1. Make a family recipe. If your little one has a favorite recipe from grandma or grandpa, this is the perfect time to create it together. For something new, try this classic Apple Pie from The Stir to make.
2. Do something creative. From a one-on-one portrait session to baking your own DIY Alphabet Magnets from Handmade Charlotte, crafting and creating keepsakes for each other is a pastime to be cherished.
3. Enjoy story time. Whether it’s reading grandma’s favorite childhood story or listening to grandpa tell exciting tall tales, build a new tradition of sharing stories as a way to bond with each other.
Tomorrow is National Cheese Pizza Day, and in celebration of all things pizza, we’re sharing one of our favorite new recipes from our Star Wars Party– Death Star™ Pizza Pockets! With such a show-stopping shape, these little snacks can easily be transformed into a fruit-filled hand pie or packed full of veggies (don’t worry – we won’t tell!)
It’s not quite Halloween yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw a little monster mash for your little ones! We love this inventive DIY Monster Jaws craft from It’s Always Autumn – it transforms simple cereal boxes and craft supplies into a chompin’ good time.
Did you hear the exciting news? We got together with our friends in Australia this weekend to celebrate the opening of our brand new Pottery Barn Kids store in Chatswood Chase, Sydney! On Saturday, guests were invited to try one of the four bespoke gelato creations from Gelato Messina, a local Sydney favorite. Each delectable dessert was inspired by our family of stores:
The Williams-Sonoma Choc-Chuck Cone. Reminiscent of Williams-Sonoma founder Chuck Williams’ favorite flavor, this treat featured a handmade waffle cone filled with creamy vanilla gelato dipped in Barry Callebaut and 70% cacao chocolate.
The Pottery Barn Kids Fairy Bread Popsicles. Velvety bread-and-butter-flavored gelato was coated in white chocolate ganache then dipped in sprinkles (or “hundreds and thousands” as they’re called in Australia!).
The West Elm NY Ice Cream Sandwich. Inspired by West Elm’s hometown of Brooklyn, this creative sweet featured Fair Trade espresso-coffee gelato sandwiched between chewy white chocolate and macadamia cookies.
The Pottery Barn Welcome Home Gelato. Lightly spiced apple gelato was fused with an almond crunch and a butterscotch swirl for a delicious and comforting dessert.
We’re so thrilled to be opening our second store in Australia, and we hope to see all of our friends there soon! Which special treat would you have tried? Share with us in the comments below!
Make a night of trick-or-treating extra special with the perfect Halloween costumes. From magical fairies to wild animals, our costumes for babies and kids are designed to engage your little one’s imagination.
Fifty-one years ago today, Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech and touched the lives of millions. Today, share a little bit of his legacy with this inspiring printable from Thirty Handmade Days. It’s a creative way to teach your little ones to love people of all backgrounds, while giving kids a chance to think about their own personal dreams.
Happy Dream Day, everyone! We hope you’re inspired to keep dreaming.
