Finally, a book giveaway! Amanda Soule’s “The Creative Family: How to Encourage Imagination and Nurture Family Connections” has met with heartfelt praise since it was published last year. It’s designed to help families embrace new ways to relax, play, and grow together by doing simple things like enjoying nature, using imagination and playing with basic art supplies and household objects.
A friend recommended this book last year. I wrote, “I’m so excited to read this book because, to be honest, creativity is not my forte. As an aspiring home-schooler (in the unschooling manner) and a part-time stay-at-home mom, I would love to create a home-culture like the one Amanda describes.”
It’s hard to explain how much has changed in the year and a half since I read “The Creative Family.” Amanda introduced me to a family culture which led to our “discovery” of Waldorf. Now we are Waldorf-inspired homeschoolers and our entire family atmosphere has changed. It all began with a toy revolution. What a fantastic and joyful change! Then I began to integrate seasonal songs, poems, books and fingerplays into my days with the children. Soon we were playing outside more. Next our interest in art exploded and I worked to create an art studio at home for their free exploration. And, last of all, I broke out of my “I’m not creative” box and felt empowered to sew, sew, sew – just in time for Handmade Home, Amanda’s latest book!
My hope is that this copy of “The Creative Family” will usher your family down a similar, yet unique path of joyful family becoming.
