Kids arts and crafts books by Jean Van’t Hul include The Artful Parent and The Artful Year, both written for families to use to have fun, raise creative kids, and celebrate art and life. Invitation to Draw is Jean’s latest book and is filled with drawing prompts to inspire kids’ creativity.
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.
Here’s a bit about each, including where you can find more about them…

Invitation to Draw
You know how big a fan I am of simple and open-ended drawing prompts. So I made a book of fun drawing prompts for kids called: Invitation to Draw: 99 Drawing Prompts to Inspire Kids’ Creativity.
It’s totally different from my previous books and yet still all about kids’ art and creativity.
Drawing prompts are like magic!Jean Van’t Hul
Drawing prompts help children draw and think more creatively by inspiring them with interesting and challenging art prompts and questions.
