From an exceptional collection of athelic apperal, Nike, Nike SB, Jordan aka Jumpman 23, Levis, to sun & surf Hurley, the Kids Rock show was a hit!

Teen superstar Carly Rose opened up the show, while DJ Kai Song spun both current & old school tunes, making the crowd bounce in their seats!

Fab hypercolors seem to be trending with splashes of fun patterns & funky graphic designs, making these US Brands stand out from the rest!

Love the versility each line offered, as well as being able to, “mix & match”! 

Nike’s hyer colors took to the run way with fun prints and accesories, as did the Nike SB line which made every kid want a skateboard!

The Jordan line is screamed, “basketball” and their athletic sets are sure to please any player.

Classic Converse footwear and apperal with grapic prints & solids are a fun staple in any childs closet!  Who doesnt love Converse footwear?

From land to sea, the Hurley has mastered trendy beach wear for kids!  Adore their graphics and designs making kids look like kids!

Levis ended the show mixing light & dark denium, then showcased denim jeans that feel like sweats!  ~LOVE this!

The true diva of the show was Leah Stills, a cancer survivor who truly put the R in ROCK!

Want a fun Valentine’s Day gift to make with the kiddies?


Then gather all your broken crayons!

There is nothing more exciting for children then to make a gift for someone.

This activity is so easy that a 2 year old could help!

Heart Crayons
*12 silicone hearts
*Broken crayons
*Parchment paper
*Cookie sheet
*Scented candle

1.) Preheat your oven to 375*, & line the cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2.) Have the children help peel all of the wrappers (discard then) from the crayons and set the crayons aside in a bowl.

* I light a scented candle in the kitchen to cover the strong scent when the crayons are cooking, & when they are removed from the oven.

3.) Next have the kids help break the crayons into small pieces and fill each heart liner halfway.

4.) Place each heart onto the parchment paper lined cookie sheet & bake in the center of the oven for 10 minutes.

5.) Afterwards let cool completely for 30 minutes, then pop out each heart crayon.

(Note, this activity can be done with any silicone muffin shape & makes great gifts!)
