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 by Jean Van’t Hul. Read my review here. 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 12 “Quiet Activities for Downtime and Transition” pages 223–242

Read Introduction (pages 223–224) and “Playful Exploration of Art Ideas and Materials” (pages 240–242) )

Choose an activity to do with your child and report on how it went. Can you use any of these activities to transition into you scheduled lesson time each day?
