[1]One of our optional books for Mom’s reading this year is The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family’s Life with Art & Creativity [2] by Jean Van’t Hul. Read my review here [3]. Over the next few months, let’s read and discuss this resource to see what we can learn from it and how we can apply it to our families.

(Yes, I know we’re going out of order!)

Look at Artful Activities: Chapter 14 “Homemade Art Materials to Make and Enjoy” pages 269–294

Read Introduction (pages 269–271) and “The Natural Artist” (pages 294–295)

Artful Activity 51: Making and Playing with Homemade Playdough

Artful Activity 52: No-Cook Playdough (Alternate)
