The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination & Nurture Family Connectionsby Amanda Soule
In economic depressions, we tend to spend more time at home with our families, finding entertainment in the things around us. Amanda Blake Soule lays out many art and craft projects for parents and kids that highlight using and appreciating what you have, in addition to honoring the time we have with our children. Her parenting philosophy is Waldorf-inspired, very down-to-earth and earth-friendly. She's even inspired this un-crafty new mom to take up embroidery and quilting — and I'm really enjoying them. Keep an eye out for her forthcoming book, Handmade Home, due out in August 2009.
Synopses & Reviews
Between work and school, music lessons, and sports practice, there is less and less time to connect as a family. Those few moments together are often spent making meals, doing homework, or watching TV. In this inspiring book, Amanda Soule, a young mother of three, presents simple ways to use arts and crafts and other forms of creativity to deepen family connections.
For parents of all backgrounds, The Creative Family offers unique creative activities for the whole family. The range of projects includes: imaginative play such as dress-up, home theater, and parlor games; arts and crafts such as family drawing time and knitting with children; nature explorations such as creating garden journals and using natural toys; and family celebrations that include making music and displaying children's art. These fun and engaging alternatives to television, video games, and the computer are meant to captivate children's imaginations, celebrate their achievements, and express love and gratitude as a family.
