Item Description...
When you learn to awaken your family's creativity, wonderful things will happen: you'll make meaningful connections with your children in large and small ways; your children will more often engage in their own creative discoveries; and your family will embrace new ways to relax, play, and grow together. With just the simple tools around you--your imagination, basic art supplies, household objects, and natural materials--you can transform your family life, and have so much more fun
Amanda Soule has charmed many with her tales of creativity and parenting on her blog, SouleMama. Here she shares ideas and projects with the same warm tone and down-to-earth voice. Perfect for all families, the wide range of projects presented here offers ideas for imaginative play, art and crafts, nature explorations, and family celebrations.
This book embraces a whole new way of living that will engage your children's imagination, celebrate their achievements, and help you to express love and gratitude for each other as a family.

Everyday reading  Dec 1, 2008
I've been reading Amanda's blog since the beginning but the book is full of beautiful photographs, her beautiful kids and her craft ideas for beginners as I am were really helpful and I can read it from time to time and find encouragement from her warm words.
learning to create  Dec 1, 2008
I didn't think I would like this book then bought it I don't know why. At first I thought it would be too far out there to do myself but it is great. I'm not the most creative person. So this book had great simple ideas to help my children mold in to more creative people when they age I hope.
I'm not an expert in this feild so I don't know if it recycled, but I say if your just dipping in this book is great.
Uncreative and environmentalist world view agenda  Nov 25, 2008
I checked out this book from the library. I am so happy that I did not spend good money on it. We all want to live a simpler life and have creative children. This book had no original ideas. I have seen many of the same projects and activities elsewhere. I grew tired of her earth worship that seems to be her world view. i.e. Her table blessing thanking the earth, quotes from Rachel Carson, etc. I gave the book one star because it was a compilation of ideas from Martha Stewart. I also was not able to give it zero because this site would not let me. If you are a more traditional family and are tired of a hippie mentality this is not the book for you. I have found more creative ideas in books about turning off your tv. Instead you may consider the book, What is a Family by Edith Schaefer. Edith Schaefer had wonderful ideas on how to be creative and simple with your family. Having time outside, time together, celebrating traditions and holidays in your home and going to the library will give you more creativity than this book will.
Inspires calm and creativity  Nov 20, 2008
I am skeptical of all blogs-turned-book-deals these days, after wasting my money several times on inferior writing and recycled ideas. This book is different. Reading it lowers my blood pressure every time, and inspires me to be a better, more calm, patient, and creative parent. Yes, much of the content was already available on her blog (which is the best mama-blog out there, in my opinion), but seeing it in book form - the cohesiveness and flow of the project... it's just beautiful. This book makes a wonderful gift for natural-minded families, which is why I am buying several.

A sweet book, but a little disappointing.  Nov 14, 2008
I thought this was a sweet book, and a pleasant read. Amanda Soule is a wonderful writer. I was a little disappointed that there were no new ideas presented here though. I felt like I was reading the same Waldorf family book I've read several times before. People say "everything has been done before", but I feel that authors can still incorporate new ideas or put their own twist on things. I did not see this here.

I was also disappointed with the craft projects. Aside from the fact that many were the same projects found all over the internet and in many other craft books, I found that most of them were projects geared towards adults with small touches added by children. I was expecting more projects actually for children, or where children played a much bigger role.

I think this would be a perfect book for someone who is new to Waldorf and Montessori philosophy and was looking for ways to incorporate these philosophies into their family life, or for someone who is looking for a simple, pleasant read paired with beautiful pictures. If you've been involved in simple family living for quite some time and are looking for something new, I would look elsewhere.
