Last week I wrote about the Shine On Saturday art activities throughout the month of August at some participating GapKids locations.

Saturday, the Georgetown store in D.C. had little tables, plenty of art supplies, and lots of big helpers ready to go for Shine On Saturday.

Though my girls are at the top of the size range for GapKids clothes,

we shopped,

I thought the new styles for fall were adorable. I loved the Jewel Box Skinnies! They came in all sizes, down to tiny, tiny little skinny jeans for hip baby girls. So cute!GapKids-Georgetown-Shine-On-Jewel-Box
I wish the GapKids stores carried more of the size 14 and 16. If we’d really loved something and they’d not had it in stock, they could have ordered it for us. Still, I like to see everything on before we buy.

My girls got great back-to-school outfits. I love the fit of the jeans. Better made than the popular mall stores for tweens where my kids like to shop, but less expensive. I feel like we got a lot more for our money at GapKids.

And my kids painted two masterpieces for my kitchen!

Want to attend one of these fun FREE art events for kids? I think the projects change each week, so you can go to more than one and they’ll still have fun.

It was nice to have the kids occupied doing something creative while I was right by them shopping. I’d like to thank the Georgetown GapKids for hosting such a fun event!

We stopped at the 5 Guys across the street for lunch. The perfect way to cap off a girls’ day of shopping.
