Kids Arts and Crafts Books by Jean Van’t Hul

The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family’s Life with Art & Creativity is my first book and has the tools and information you need to encourage your children’s creativity through art. It’s been translated into several languages and sold around the world and was recently completely updated and revised.

The Artful Year: Celebrating the Seasons and Holidays with Crafts & Recipes contains a year’s worth of family crafts, art activities, recipes, and more to help make each season special.


Invitation to Draw: 99 Drawing Prompts to Inspire Kids’ Creativity is filled with drawing prompts that inspire kids’ creativity. It’s the perfect activity for kids during quiet time, transitions, travel, waiting at doctor’s office, restaurants, etc.
