One to Watch: Big Kids Magazine

Got something in the inbox the other day that looked pretty cool – a new creative arts magazine "for children and their grown ups" called BIG Kids Magazine. The mag is based out of Australia and touts bravery, imagination and generosity- three characteristics I can definitely support! The biannual publication is set to show kids' work and artists' work side by side and the editorial team is child-led.

Supporting the artists community and inspiring creativity in kids are values we share at Babesta -so we're excited! This should be a project worth following! Can't wait to see the first issue. Check out their progress at www.bigkidsmagazine.com.

Newark Museum and BASF Partner to Make Kids’ Science Learning Lab

Newark museum

We thought it pretty cool when BASF announced that it is partnering with the Newark Museum to create a Kids' Science Learning Lab at the Museum. As the daughter of a chemist, experimentation is in my blood. I can just imagine how much fun it would be for kids (under supervision) to try out these fun interactive classes on Saturdays. Here's a list of classes:

Sept 29 (Water Loves Chemistry: Operation Filtration), October 6 (Playful Polymers), October 13 (The Rainbow Connection), October 20 (A Hair-Raising Experiment), November 3 (The pHun Factor), November 17 (Happy Hands), December 1 (Hold Everything), December 8 (A Hair Raising Experiment) and December 15 (Playful Polymers)– at 1pm and 3pm. Get on your safety goggles folks! This will be fun!

For children aged 6-12

Participation: Free, but space is limited

At Babesta: One Jacket by A for Apple, 3 Ways To Wear it

A for Apple’s Dewi Utility Furry Jacket might just be the piece de resistance for the season. It’s highly versatile and can be worn layered with the fur vest for a luxe-cool, without the fur vest to get an army jacket feel or vest-alone to top off a chic ensemble. The faux fur is soft and the quality and details of this jacket are stand out

Sunday at the MET: Good Taste/Bad Taste : The Evolution of Contemporary Chic

On Sunday, June 17, Iris Apfel (age 90) and blogger Tavi Gevinson (age 16) chat about what it means to be chic in the 21st century. This "possible conversation" will happen alongside the "impossible conversations" between Schiaparelli and Prada at the Costume Insitute exhibit (which is amazing!). The dialogue will be moderated by Judith Thurman, who wrote the intro to the exhibition catalog for the Schiaparelli/Prada exhibit.

Free with admission.
