Engaging your child in creative play isn't just fun: it gives him or her the tools to succeed in life. In everything they do, from drawing and playing, to seeing and understanding the world, solving problems, and developing deeper relationships, children use their creativity. It's how they learn to understand the world around them. It's no wonder, then, that parents want to share in the joy of creativity with their children - both as a way to encourage their children's creative lives and to express their own creativity as well. For those whose creative life was revitalized or sparked for the first time by their children - or for those seeking ways to creatively engage with their children - "The Creative Family" offers ways for the whole family to deepen their creative endeavours through art, play, nature, and family celebrations.Full of simple activities and engaging projects, this book offers ways to: keep creating as a parent; create and connect with one's children in thoughtful and meaningful ways; and nurture a child's own creative self. To this end, it offers a wealth of different ways to connect as a family.
