In Summer

Written by Allyson Hillary – @allysonhillary

We all know how Frozen’s Olaf feels about summer. And right about now, he’s busy doing what snowmen do…melting! Just like we are. And for mor reasons than the heat. We’ve got the kiddos on constant rotation, which means moonlighting as both Camp and Mess Hall Directors, everyone working from home, and no clear end in sight. At least not for those of us going back to school virtually (which, in California is pretty much everyone). 

It seems we could all use a moment to cool off. The Babiekins team has your proverbial tall glass of refreshing water in Glitterville Studio’s online craft class. They’ve teamed up with the folks of Broadway’s Frozen to bring the icy breeze from the Great White Way to your backyard by way of a craft kit. 

Join Emmy award winning host Michelle Park and the celebrated craft master behind Glitterville Studios, (and some of Oprah’s favorite things) Stephen Brown, for an hour long guided crafting session that will give your kiddos the royal treatment. Kids can choose to create either an Elsa tiara or an Olaf crown, which will be mailed prior to the live class. Kits are $75 and include a link to the event, which will be recorded for your convenience. Join live on Saturday, August 29th at 11am, or sign on to the link at your leisure. 

Either way, it is sure to provide some much needed respite, both for you, the kiddos and the community writ large as a portion of proceeds from every kit will go towards Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and their COVID-19 crisis care. Your participation in the class will provide meals, health care and emergency assistance to those in need across the country. And what’s cooler than being kind AND keeping the kiddos occupied simultaneously?! It’s an event worth melting for.
