The Artful Year Book - Celebrating the Seasons and Holidays with Family Arts and Crafts

Hello, my friends!

I have something special to share with you…

It’s my new book!

The Artful Year :: Celebrating the Seasons & Holidays with Crafts & Recipes

Receiving my box of author copies from the publisher was so exciting—like Christmas!—yet this is something that I had created.

My first book was a labor of love.

Love of kids’ art. Love of creativity.

And wanting to share both with the world in a way that hadn’t been done before. In an accessible, fun, and encouraging way so that would inspire as many parents and teachers as possible to share art with the kids in their lives. I wanted to show the importance of creativity so that more people would make it a priority.

The Artful Year Book Spine

This book?

The Artful Year was a labor of joy.

The joy and excitement that I get from the seasons and holidays.

The Artful Year Book - Playdough Around the Year

And the joy and excitement that children the world over get from the seasons and holidays.

As humans, we get so much enjoyment and inspiration from nature and the seasonal changes that happen throughout the year. And we have found ways to celebrate those seasons and their holidays as individuals, families, and cultures.

The Artful Year takes you through the year with many creative ways to celebrate each of the seasons and holidays with arts and crafts, food, books, and activities. Over 175 family-friendly activities!

As you know, this book is based on the four seasonal ebooks I created. You may even have one or more of those ebooks on your tablet or laptop.

But with the help of my editor, Jennifer Urban-Brown, and the wonderful team at Roost Books, those ebooks have gone through a series of changes, morphing from awkward teenagers to enter into a graceful and self-confident early adulthood as The Artful Year book.

I’m so proud of it! And so thankful for the wonderful work that Roost has done to make this book possible.

The Artful Year - Celebrating the Seasons and Holidays with Family Crafts and Recipes

The Artful Year is divided into five main sections ::

  • Activities for All Seasons
  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Autumn
  • Winter

The Artful Year Book - Spring and Easter Crafts

Each section of the book is filled with seasonal and holiday crafts, recipes, art projects, and other activities. Plus our favorite children’s books about each of the seasons and holidays.

I hope you like my new book as much as I do!

    I have just bought and devoured your first book, then spent hours mulling over your amazing website. This week, for the first time ever, my 3-year-old has made some art every single day and, just like that, my fear has dissipated! I am sold: less screen-time, new peace, and a real sense of exploration and fun in our everyday.

    Seeing news of your new book just now made me so excited! Thank you so much for your inspiring work. I am a huge fan!

    Hey, I am freshly moved to the US and in my first weeks I searched the Internet and Facebook for good ideas to entertain my very creative boys. Then I#ve found your page… Love it sooo much….We really found good ideas and sometimes, they figure out another good idea from one of your ideas. Its amazing how much my kids are grown in confidence. Thanks so much. I really love to have your book, hopefully signed.
    And congratulations to your new book. You must be very proud!
    Love Silke

We would love winning this beautiful book to inspire us on our artistic journey throughout 2015. (I am not artistic or creative in any way, shape, or form…so having a “guidebook” of sorts for projects to help my Son retain the artistic vision of himself would be amazing). Thank you for your wonderful posts. Blessings and light.

    We inherited an old cupboard from my grandmother and have filled it with all sorts of bits and pieces, from sweetie wrappers to corks, old Christmas Cards, bottle tops, ribbons, beads, socks with holes, old sweaters, smooth rocks and pine cones etc. The children now say, ‘this can go in the craft draws’ rather than ‘which bin should I throw it away in’. Making pictures and things is one of their favourite things to do and your wonderful looking book will I’m sure be a super source of yet more seasonal ideas.

    With the way the school system is nowadays – It really is up to us at home to foster the arts, as creativity is taking a back seat to other areas of the curriculum. As much as I love Visual Arts, I am not skilled in this area – your book would help me unlock my inner creativity and help my little girl grow to her full potential. My wish is her to be imaginative, creative and to think outside the box – qualities that I believe your book will help me achieve.

    hi Jean, I just wanted to Thankyou. I won your last contest and received my copy of “the artful parent” in the mail last week and it made my day. When I was in school- I didn’t like art because I never thought I was good enough. Now as a teacher I love doing art with my students and are always looking for ways to engage them. Most of my students have autism and I find art & music ( and cooking) to be some of my favourite experiences to share with them. Thankyou for sharing your ideas! – Beth

    I recently purchased your first book for my twin preschoolers, and not only do they love everything about it, but so do the moms in our playgroup! Adding your new book to our group would add a new dimension of fun, especially during holidays. Thank you for all your work and creativity!

    Hello,

    Congratulation on your new creation! And thanks for sharing it with us-random people.
    Nowadays the information about everything is too much and sometimes it is very hard to find and select what one exactly is searching for. So, thank you for being well organised, always new and interesting about ideas for materials and creative tips; and thanks for pointing that everything that surrounds us could be a part of some artful playing. I could frankly say that all that was missing in my childhood I could do as a grown-up and had the same fun as the kids.

    Wish you all the best!

    My copy just arrived. I’m confessing that as someone who rarely bakes, I am inspired from Jean’s book and I’m going to bake! The photos are just too yummy!! As someone who writes about art for kids, I’m delighted with the art and crafts in The Artful Year … delighted hardly covers it. I’m jumping and screaming. Jean, the book is not only wonderful, it is beautiful. I really really really love it.
