Last weekend Scarlet, her BFF Niko, myself, and Niko’s Mama all headed out to the Ace Hotel Palm Springs for Crafting Community Weekend put on by Kimmel Kids and Kid Concierge, and we had a BLAST.

It was a weekend of swimming, playing, and crafting, with stations set up all throughout the day for kids to make all sorts of awesome crafts like succulent gardens, necklaces, mod podge pots, felted rocks, crochet, etc. etc. etc.

We had barbecues, smores, jumping on the bed, swimming till we could swim no more, and drinking wine on the patio after the tots konked out. It was a total blast.

Totally worth the trip – really the best vacation a crafty family could imagine. See more pics and get inspired to do some crafts with your kids after the jump!

As usual, leave a comment and you could win this week’s prize, an awesome 1/2 yard of nicey jane oilcloth!

Crafting Community Weekend

Some of the loot we made and brought home to dad.

Scarlet’s fave – learning how to cut with scissors to make felt boards.

Crochet station.

Mod Podge a pot, then the next day they could plant seeds in them, but there was so much to do we didn’t get around to it!

Baby yoga was offered.

And the lovely pool was reserved for the families.  Everyone looked out for everyone else’s kid and we all swam and played.

Delicious meals were served in the prettied up dining area.

Before the mad rush at the craft stations.

Her first room service was a total hit.


Buddies in their hand painted shirts.

My favorite treat from the weekend, the necklaces s and I made together.  She picked out the colors – she’s got mad style, right?


Can’t wait for the next one!
