A Week of Warhol


All week we've been celebrating the release of Mudpuppy's board book, Andy Warhol "So Many Stars." We've been posting on Facebook and Instagram, folding colorful stars in the office, and prepping for a cool Warhol kid's event this Saturday in NYC.

If you're in NYC this Saturday, 10/26 (11am - 12Noon), bring the kids to the MoMA Design Store in SoHo for a special reading of the book, followed by coloring, playing with Warhol puzzles, origami star folding, photo ops and raffle prizes. See you there! MoMA Design Store in SoHo - 81 Spring Street, NYC


Monster Mania at Mudpuppy!


My 5-year-old loves that I work somewhere that makes a monsters Flip & Draw sketch pad and a book of stickers chocked full of goofy, creepy crawlies. That makes me a cool Mom.  These are some of his favorite Mudpuppy monster activities and on the plush (softer) side, I couldn't resist including some of mine!

Are your little ones in the monster phase?

Creative Fun for Halloween


Do you have dress up on your mind? Halloween is quickly approaching and likely, so are parties for the kids. Mudpuppy Make-A-Masks are a great Halloween activity for little ones to show their creative side and have fun dressing up.

But Make-a-Masks aren't just for Halloween... Barnes & Noble locations across the country are hosting a hands-on learning event called "Voyage of the Imagination”, where children will create their very own Make-A-Mask to share with a story. Check the Barnes & Noble calendar for event locations and times (events are between October 19 - October 31).

Will they choose to be a Princess or a Pirate? Or save the day as a Superhero?
