As the summer winds down the excitement grows, it’s back-to-school time! And that means back to school shopping for crayons, pencils, back-to-school clothes and the most important outfit of all the first-day-of-school outfit. It’s kind of a big deal around here, and my daughters love hunting for all of their supplies and clothes for the coming year.
My girls love to wear matching outfits so they often do. But sometimes I like to put them in coordinating outfits that are slightly different too. Gymboree is perfect for this because Sissy fits in the toddler sizes and K the big girl sizes. Like these adorable coordinating dresses from the Hop and Roll line — Hearts Ruffle Dress for K and Sunny Dot Dress for Sissy.
Let’s Color Together
As my family finishes up back-to-school shopping filling backpacks with supplies we are very aware of how fortunate we are and that there are many students who can’t afford even basic supplies. Helping to provide supplies is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. So much so that K purchased crayons and glue with her allowance to donate to a student in need. (My sweet girl!)
This back to school season Gymboree is raising money to fulfill arts and crafts requests made by teachers on DonorsChoose.org. As a crafty mom with kids who share her love for crayons, paints and markers, it breaks my heart to know that so many kids don’t have access to basic craft supplies. Art and creative expression are such and important part of childhood, every child deserves access to these materials.
Through Gymboree’s Let’s Color Together program you can be part of the solution to provide these tools to kids in the highest-need school with basic art supplies. You can make a donation to this worthy cause during your back to school shopping at Gymboree through September 7. Remember even $1 supplies a child with a pack of crayons for the year. Donate today to a school in your community, and help give kids a brighter future.
