And in the category of best news we've heard all week . . . it's official, Diane von Furstenberg is going to be designing a second collection for GapKids and BabyGap! "I really loved the challenge of translating my designs into the first DVF for Gap collection," von Furstenberg said. "It was so much fun to see little girls wearing the pieces, and I'm looking forward to collaborating with Gap on this second collection."
"Diane’s iconic prints, signature silhouettes and optimistic color palettes really resonated with our customers around the world," added Steve Sunnucks, Gap's global president. "After a successful first collaboration, we’re thrilled to continue working with Diane and excited to see what she will bring forward in her second DVF for Gap collection."
The collaboration is scheduled to make its debut this April at select GapKids, BabyGap, and DVF stores, and online on Gap.com. Check out the first collection in its entirety, and get excited for more of DVF's iconic looks — shrunken down to size, this Spring.
There are plenty of fun, family-friendly activities you can do indoors, so chilly Winter weather doesn't have to leave you sluggish. Sports, games, silly projects — we're highlighting a variety of heart-pumping options to keep your kids moving throughout the season. Steer clear of cabin fever with these active pastimes for kids of all ages!
Potty training used to involve little more than a potty seat, a book about the toilet, and a few rewards for successful trips there. Today, the most basic of ideas has gone high tech (and we're not even talking about using the iPotty for training). While it may seem odd to hand your smartphone or tablet over to a tot just learning how to use the toilet, an array of potty training apps may actually convince you otherwise. From interactive storybooks to animated reward charts and countdown timers that nudge kids to visit the restroom, these five apps may have you doing your own potty dance for joy sooner than you ever imagined possible.
When it comes to kids room decor, wall decals have been popular for years. But for literature-loving little ones (and their parents), a new collection from Walls360 is truly transformative. Beloved children's books like Corduroy, The Little Prince, Paddington Bear, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar are brought to life as the illustrations on their pages are turned into life-size wall decals. The images are ones that have been familiar for years, but they become new again when they're brought into your very own space.
Which iconic images would you pick for your child's room?
There's something about crafting with felt that brings out the kid in all of us. Regardless of how it's glued, sewn, or cut, we love the retro feel the fabric brings to projects. It also happens to be one of the easiest materials for young tots to handle due to its thickness — there's a reason so many preschool projects are made from felt!
With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we turned to Jodi Levine, crafts editor at Martha Stewart Living, for some advice on crafting with our kids for the big day. "Many years ago my friend Page Marchese Norman and I started a tradition of hand making Valentine's gifts for our co-workers," Jodi shared. "I think we had originally meant for them to be holiday gifts but with the December craziness, Valentine's seemed like a more reasonable deadline! Felt had always been a favorite material of ours. Because felt is nonwoven and doesn't fray, it requires no hemming, making it super easy to work with."
Check out the five easy crafts your lil ones can create with minimal help from mom and dad.
