My very favorite place to find inspiration for beautiful activities to do with my kids is Playful Learning. Mariah (the founder) writes very thoughtful content that has been so helpful to me. Her book, blog, e-courses, and mini-courses, offer parents ideas and resources for creating learning spaces and experiences in their homes. Whether you send your kids to school— or homeschool like we do, you will find inspiration for nurturing in your children a love for leaning as well as great tips for organizing materials— from chore charts to books, school papers to art supplies, and more.
Here are a few of our favorite Playful Learning inspired projects:
Phases of the Moon Journals (from the Playful Learning book):
Adalie’s DIY ABC Photography Book (inspired by this post):
Andy Goldsworthy Inspired Artwork (see this post):
(thanks to the Playful Learning Spaces E-course):
Mariah has been so generous to offer one of our readers her book, Playful Learning, as well as a spot in the Playful Learning Spaces e-Course! I know you will find them both to be very inspiring and helpful. From the Playful Learning Spaces course description:
“Throughout the six classes we will explore and share ideas for creating areas that invite children to engage in reading, writing, science, art, and more. We will also discuss organization, storage, and selecting materials for different ages and stages of child development. Each class consists of a video that contains basic educational principles, simple guidelines, and helpful photos.”
We’ll keep this giveaway open until the end of the week since it is such a big one.
I hope you win!
