Activity Resource Books for Parents and Children

For moms out there, we are all guilty of letting our kids watch too much TV and let the TV babysits them while we are doing other things. The truth is, kids are much better learner when they explore it by themselves. When they learn, listen, and do give much more experience that are more precious for them. But reality is that we are busy cleaning, cooking, working, preparing clothes for the next day, packing lunch, doing laundry and many other things that sometimes we'd rather do than play with our kids.

Parents, we need to equip ourselves with resources. Today, I wanted to share with you several books that can help you get creative and enough resource to fill in those TV time with meaningful and fun activities. 

"Susan Schwake's Art Lab for Kids is a well-thought-out guide, making it easy to introduce art into children's lives. Simple, clear explanations of technique, combined with inspiration from established artists, will enable children to feel successful and encouraged to explore art as a form of expression." - Rebecca Emberley, best-selling children's book author and illustrator - Amazon recommendations

When I took a glance at this book, as an artist myself, I was amazed that this book has a lot of different techniques of art that we can teach our kids. It's not just doodle drawings, but more of method of the art they are making. I personally love this book.

Another book was also published mixed media by Carla Sonheim, which is also worth checking out.

For those of you who have toddlers in the home, this book is absolutely a great book. I recommend you to get it and get yourself resourseful with the information inside. 

Snippet from Amazon: ...stimulate a child’s natural curiosity with entertaining math, language, and motor-skills activities, encourage a child’s physical, mental, and emotional growth, celebrate holidays and other occasions with special projects and activities, and keep toddlers occupied during long car trips or while running errands. The Toddler's Busy Book is written with warmth and sprinkled with humor and insight.

Trish Kuffner, the author also published several books that might interest you as well. They are all available to purchase online.

Remember creative parents produce creative kids. :)

Live, love and be creative.
