pop-up playdate: come create a baltimore treasure map with us!

BIG Kids Magazine has a call out. They want kids all over the world to create images inspired by treasure maps. Drawn, photographed, painted, built, folded, soldered or danced... Real or wildly imagined.

They're challenging kids all over the world to think outside the treasure chest.

Well, we love a challenge. And we're inviting families all around the city to help us create a giant Baltimore treasure map.

Join us, the fab creative minds from Classic Play and A Childhood List, and the imagination groovers at aMuse Toys on Saturday, January 28 from 2 PM - 4 PM to create a kids' treasure map of Baltimore. We'll provide the art supplies (crayons, colored pencils, markers, scissors, glue... you name it). We're asking YOU to bring and contribute pictures/quotes/drawings/paintings/magazine cut-outs/small 3-D models made out of cardboard of your favorite Baltimore places to create  a one-of-a-kind collaborate art treasure map. We'll be photographing the final product and submitting it to be considered for publication in the next BIG Kids Magazine.

We can't wait to see what happens when you cross this idea....

With this idea...

And this idea...

... all fueled by collective creativity of local kids and families!
