Has your kid come home from school yet with a Father’s Day gift? My preschooler’s “special surprise” is safely nestled inside a paper bag decorated with colorful artwork. My 8-year-old has yet to make something, but it’s on this week’s to-do list. Because the best gifts are of the homemade variety (or at least, they’re the most memorable ones), it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get crafty. But if you’re pressed for time and would rather not break out the rainy day box of supplies, consider doing double-duty on your trip to the mall this weekend. On Saturday, June 16th at 3 pm and 4 pm, participating Pottery Barn Kids stores will be partnering with Kiwi Crate to host a craft event. For $10, kids will be able to make their own “stained glass” picture frame for Dad or Grandpa (not to worry; it’ll be a safe activity with no sharp edges). So while you’re looking for the latest gadget at The Sharper Image or a new set of golf clubs at The Sports Authority, you can swing on over to PBK and let your little one show your hubby just have creative she truly is.

In a Nutshell: A picture may be worth a thousand words, but an original creation from your child is priceless.
