In 2010, I started a blog called C.R.A.F.T., dedicated to Creating Really Awesome Fun Things. Two years later, I quit my special education teaching job to pursue C.R.A.F.T. full time. I turned crafting into my career!
My son was born in 2014, and I was thrilled to get him on the craft train as soon as possible.
And then… I didn’t.
Creating with kids was way harder than I thought. It’s messy, time consuming, and can get expensive quick. (Did I mention messy!) Plus what was I supposed to do with all of his creations?
But, I know that creativity is the backbone of problem solving and is a crucial (and fun!) skill for my kiddos future. Creativity is a muscle that needs to be strengthen and I had to figure out how to make creativity a priority in our house and not go insane.
Over the last 4 years, I came up with some brilliant ways to create with my kids, and turn our house into a place where creativity thrives. My kids and I craft with anything and everything we can get our hands on including paper plates, toilet paper rolls, and cereal boxes. Most of you know, I even wrote a book about crafting with kids!
In honor of C.R.A.F.T.’s 8th birthday, I’m thrilled to launch a free e-mail course called: Cultivating Creativity: The Foolproof Plan to Creating with Kids. Once you sign up, you’ll get one lesson a day delivered right to your inbox.
The lessons are filled with tips and tricks that you can put into practice right away. Including a list of 20 free craft supplies hiding in your home and 10 secrets to cleaner crafting! My hope is that after you complete the 5 day course you feel empowered to create with your kids without buying anything new or going insane.
There’s nothing I love more than hearing that an idea I shared helped you and your family make creativity fun and a part of your daily life!
Best of all, it’s free!
