Description

Celebrating the seasons provides a wonderful opportunity to embrace creativity together as a family. It’s also a fun way to decorate for, prepare for, and learn about the holidays we celebrate. In The Artful Year, you’ll find a year’s worth of art activities, crafts, recipes, and more to help make each season special. These artful explorations are more than just craft projects—they are ways for your family to create memories and mementos and develop creatively, all while exploring nature, new ideas, and traditions. The book includes:

  • Arts and crafts, using the materials, colors, and themes of the season
  • Ideas and decorations for celebrating the holidays together
  • Favorite seasonal recipes that are fun for children to help make (and eat!)
  • Suggested reading lists of children’s picture books about the seasons and holidays
The 175+ activities in this book are perfect for children ages one to eight, and for creating traditions that appeal to all ages.
