  2. Me and the boy usually just draw things, but that's enough with him since he does more crafts at daycare and he loves these lil' drawing sessions with mama.

  3. What a great book! My daughter is 15 months old and I really want her to love art and craft. These days we're mostly playing with crayons.

  5. Well let's see, my kid makes me draw something, outlines only and she gets to colour them in. hehe. That's how we roll these days. : )

    the rain! crappy weather keeps us indoors and gets our creative juices flowing! it't not always pretty what we make (hence we call it "arts+craps"), but we have a blast doing it. art is in the eye of the beholder, right?!!!

  8. Story time told through the imagination of a little one is always a creatively good time!

  9. I plan to use this as a form of babysitting. You know, pay some bills online while my child is coloring in what I think is this book but is actually my couch.

  10. What a gorgeous book! Now that we've finished the Muji Funny Face sticker book, which has been the best thing for my 2yr old, I've been on the look out for a fun art book that I would love as much as Phoebe.
    On another note...I LOVE the little drawing your friend did for the registry guide. adorable.

  11. My daughter is only 14 months old, so I get creative by finding interesting ways to prevent her from eating crayons. Hahah. But, I could seriously use this book to bolster my own artistic skills, because they are pretty poor. And I'm getting tired of showing her how to draw stick people and houses. Cuz that's all I've got in my bag of drawing tricks.

  12. We like to use random things to paint. Glasses with prints on them, cloth, etc. to give neat patterns and a different feel.

  14. My son Presley isn't quite old enough yet- we've let him walk through watercolors onto a canvass for a different type of keepsake footprint however I keep moleskins full of neat ideas to do with him as he grows older! One of the things I look forward to most is having him draw various monsters and turning them into stuffed creatures much like Donna Wilson's. I adore this blog and would love to see more insight to your personal lives! I had to search hard to find a picture of that beautiful nursery- something that should be seriously FLAUNTED!
