There is no doubt that this election year is an important one and there is no better time to teach our kiddos about their rights as citizens to vote. Since some of us here at Babiekins homeschool, we have also taken time out to explain to our kiddos how voting works and how important it is to make sure we vote and have our voices heard.
We love this editorial by Erica Allen and stylist Someday Paintred and thought it would be the perfect fashion shoot to inspired all of you to get out and rock your vote!

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.
Follow along for more excitement
Staying home doesn’t need to be boring or drab, our photographer friend Leonie Freeman has got the right ideas with her Wes Anderson style retro tent in her backyard. Our Goodordering kids backpacks go perfectly with this look, and we absolutely love the colourful clothes her kids are wearing.

“I knew kids have their own sense of style when I watched @lora_van_r grow into her current personality. There are certain garments that shed turn to in her closet when she felt a specific mood. Also when other people would make suggestions for her she would simply agree or turn down the suggestions. She knows what works for her because she knows who she is. It’s as simple as that” – stylist, photographer and hair Artist – Nigera @vagilina
We love this quote by @cleowade and believe her words are words to live by and we love how much shine the sweet Lora Van gives out in these photos!
