I remember a time in my life, when Barbies were my all time favorite toy. Any store I went to, I’d look for the toy isle searching for the new addition to my Barbie family. There was one thing that made the decision of who would stay and who would be purchased: their outfits. Suddenly, it hit me, Barbies clothes could be made by staples, glue, and old clothes I was too big to fit.
From this moment on, my creative spark began to flow inspiring me to design my own pieces of clothing and jewelry. My experience, has taught me creative expression starts at a very young age.
Kids now a days, I feel, aren’t given opportunities to put their minds to work through physical exercises. With this age of constantly growing technology, kids are focused more on things built in devices instead of progressing in the world around them. Ages 7 to 11 is a very pivotal time in a child’s life. They begin to experiment with the idea of what their future will hold, create dreams of a life expanded outside of reality, take on new adventures like making friends and understanding what their interest are.
Fashion camp is a perfect place to bring your 7 to 11 year old to have a hands- on- day of creative expression. Boys AND girls welcome, Fashion camp is designed completely around the children’s interest of what looks best to them. A judgement free zone, Fashion camp will be a jam packed day full of designing outfits for your favorite doll, styling their friends in clothes donated from a local children consignment shop, creating their own paper bag/ purse, and manage a photo shoot of their partner of which they have dressed themselves.
Who could say no to a rich five hour learning experience. Get your kids out into the world and let them encounter the world they want to create.
