Wondering what our second annual Shoes & Stories event on August 14th is all about? Susan, who attended the inaugural event, shares what it was like to do a storytelling and sneaker decorating activity with her daughter.
What was the most memorable part about Shoes & Stories?
Watching my daughter and her friend figure out their “story” and then try to depict it on their shoes.
What was your daughter’s favorite part about the event?
>She loved the chance to be creative and decorate her shoes to reflect who she is… she also LOVED running around and playing at SPARK!
What did your daughter draw on her shoes and what was her inspiration?
She ended up just making an abstract design of her favorite colors and she LOVED them!
Were you surprised at all by her creation?
No, she is very creative and artistic and they ended up being a great representation of her.
Did the event bring you and your daughter closer?
I always think a unique experience that creates memories brings you closer.
Did you find it extra special that it was an all-girls event?
I think it was good that it was all-girls because I think it made it easier for them to be creative.
Would you recommend Shoes & Stories to your friends and why?
Absolutely! It is a fun, unique event that allows you to spend quality time with your child and create memories!
