    Because my 5-year-old is infatuated with all things bunny these days, Easter can’t come soon enough this year.

    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 [&hellip

No longer reserved just for summer camp or the soccer field, water bottles are everywhere. And if there’s a staple product that I know we’ll be using again and again, I’m more inclined to invest in a more expensive model that stands up to wear and tear than settle for an inexpensive, flimsy model that we’ll inevitably wind up replacing again and again. In my houses, we go through water bottles like…well, water. One look at [&hellip

    My daughters share a hand-me-down craft table that’s seen its fair share of crafting sessions and tea parties. If the faded marker smudges and discolored tabletop is any indication of its storied past, we know this particular piece of furniture has taken quite a licking over the years. Maybe that’s why we’re intrigued by the Brunswick Play Table. Part of the Pottery Barn Kids Spring 2012 Collection, this good-looking, yet highly functional table is the ideal focal point piece for any spacious¬† play room. Made from a solid wood construction, it’s designed to withstand years and years of play, from one sibling to the next. The table’s dark finish, poised to hold up to potential craft supply stains, is balanced out by six card catalog-style, [&hellip

    It’s official: With just 2 more shopping days left until Christmas, we’ve finally entered the holiday home stretch. Have you finished all your shopping–or even started your gift-wrapping? If you’re like me and the kids are home from school, you’ll need to get creative, but also get your holiday preparations done. To keep your kids occupied as you put the finishing touches on Christmas, let them personalize their wrapping paper with this Keepsake Footprint Paper craft from Pottery Barn Kids. To get this party started, plan to factor in a little extra time for set-up, or enlist the help of an older sibling to assist younger tots. You can use store-bought brown paper (found at your local craft store or wherever packing supplies are sold), [&hellip
