Talk about a creative day out!
On Tuesday, Suri Cruise
stepped out for an afternoon filled with arts and crafts in New York City with her mom, Katie Holmes
, and her grandmother, Kathleen, at Make Meaning on the Upper East Side.
Right away, Suri ran towards the toys – but this wasn't a shopping trip. Instead of treating her to new trinkets, the trio ended up on the second floor, not in a private room, painting ceramics.
Suri went after "every color in the rainbow," says a source at Make Meaning, which offers up to 50 activities, including jewelry making. She even tried her hand at decorating mugs, ceramic unicorns and a dog bowl.
"Katie was very hands-on," says the source. "There was a lot of back and forth between mother and daughter. Suri was totally immersed in the creativity." – Catherine Kast
