The Artful Parent

21 April 2013

Raising children in an art-rich environment encourages their creativity, imagination, and self-confidence.

The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family‘s Life with Art & Creativity gives you the tools and inspiration to provide such an environment for your family.

Projects include:


  • Simon Says, Draw!: This activity, an art-based form of the classic Simon Says, is a great intro to art making for the whole family.
  • Body Tracing and Painting: Get children seeing and thinking about their bodies by doing actual-size paintings.
  • Shaving Cream Painting on the Window: Let young children revel in the opportunity to sink their hands into piles of shaving cream that they can smoosh around with their hands and fingers.
  • Contact Paper Suncatchers: Create easy-to-make suncatchers with beautiful results.
