Paint, Glaze & Fire

Kids Club Event Recap

Hey there, KC! Have you ever been somewhere, smelled something or seen something and you were instantly transported back to your childhood or a special memory? At our recent iFamilyKC Kids Club event, I was! For the first time forever…just kidding, sorry if that song gets stuck in your head now. But seriously, for the first time in a very, very long time, I was transported back to my childhood when my kiddos and I visited Paint, Glaze & Fire.

Growing up, my grandmother had a room dedicated to ceramics and I loved watching her make and paint them. Paint, Glaze & Fire is a neat art studio filled with pre-made ceramics in a wide variety of things. They have plates, mugs, figurines, home decor and plenty more to choose from. You and your family could spend a nice afternoon there laughing and painting away! They have a coffee shop inside with a variety of drinks and snacks in case you or your kiddos need a little something to sip or eat. There really is no rush!

Even though space was limited to the first 18 people, there was no shortage of fun and memories being made. For this special event, kids and parents were able to pick a specially selected ceramic fitting to the season. There were ghosts, monsters, pumpkins and mugs. Of course, my kiddos went straight for the pumpkins!

Paint, Glaze and Fire is located at 12683 Metcalf Ave. in Overland Park, KS

They are open Tuesday- Sunday with various open and closing times. They do allow walk in sessions if seating is available but they highly recommend making a reservation. You can get more information on making reservations and hours of operation by visiting their website.

The cool thing about Paint, Glaze & Fire is that along with ceramic painting, they also offer glass fusion, raw clay building and even canvas painting. Plus, they host kid’s birthday parties or group outings too!

As a homeschooling family, this is definitely moving into our extra-curricular activities budget for Art class!  Check out some of the cool things we painted! I didn’t get to snap a picture once they were done painting, I was having too much fun of my own! I hope you can make it out to our next Kids Club event!

My Little Pony: The Movie-A Movie the Whole Family Can Enjoy!

The much anticipated My Little Pony movie is finally out nationwide. Are your kids excited?! We sent Ruth, from our iFamilyKC Mom Squad team to catch an early screening last weekend. She shares her thoughts with you today on the blog. Take a look…

My Little Pony: The Movie-A Movie the Whole Family Can Enjoy!

This weekend I got to experience the world of Equestria. Five little ponies and their friend Spike took on an epic adventure to save their land from a new villain. The ponies left their home to seek help after their city was imposed upon. During the movie, the ponies learned to lean on each other in a time of need. Visiting new lands in search of the Hippo Queen led them down an interesting road of ups and downs while still being pursued by The Storm King’s crew and their leader Tempest.

Along the way, they helped a band of swashbuckling pirates that had lost their free will and were now forced to carry villain merchandise for sale. This act of bravery landed them some new friends and bought them a little time when they needed a quick escape. The movie had a few twists additional twists and turns, happy moments and more acts of friendship until finally ending on a sweet emotional note. Friendship truly is magic.

My Little Pony: The Movie rose above my expectations of the animated television show that I knew and loved as a child. The new adventure not only caught my attention but delighted my girls as well. I found lots of humor in this movie with discreet references to other movies and shows from my childhood through quick one-liners that mostly 80’s and 90’s kids would recognize. Be sure to listen closely when you go see the movie!

I was impressed with the way things took a turn and became a slightly darker film with more action and villains that I bet would intrigue little boys. I even heard a few laughs from my husband. The film added a bunch of new characters but still carried the same important message of friendship. Director Jayson Thiessen took some creative liberties with this film and invented a new and fascinating story line. Overall, I was impressed by the wit in this film and I would definitely watch it again! Be sure to check out this film. It officially opens in theaters on October 6th.

I want to give a big shout out to the Cinemark 20 Theater in Merriam for hosting the screening, providing quality seating but also had a selection of pony kiddie combos and stuffed toys for purchase. This completed our movie going experience.
