With the Kids

The Artful Parent Resource Book

I love a good kids craft book and I’m so excited about this one from Jean of The Artful Parent.

Artful Parent Book review

I’ve been following her blog since I started blogging and her site is filled with so many fabulous ideas. It’s all about being creative and bringing art back into our kids lives. So I was thrilled when I found out she wrote a book called The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family’s Life with Art & Creativity. I received a copy and my kids have been diving in looking for activities to do since we got it.

Artful Parent Ideas

See this fabulous idea for painting with kids below, getting right into the whole action of it? I need to find a plastic pool to make this happen during the summer!
