Our new website is called The Creativity Project and it’s up and live and looks so good! Shannon and I are so excited to have a new hub for our at-home learning guides. If you followed along in the Spring when we launched our first Art + Play Guides here on this website, you how hard we worked to bring families creative ideas that were tied to curriculum so they could feel a sense of comfort and bring some routine and joy into their days at home during lockdown. We wanted the guides to be accessible and doable for everyone!
Over the summer, we transformed our guides into a printable PDF that families can subscribe to and receive in their inbox every month! Each guide has a “learning story” for the month which is the theme that threads through all of the activities and lists. September’s learning story is All About Me, which is a familiar theme for the start of the school year, but with the added benefit of being able to explore “self” in a more nurturing and intimate setting at home. Children will not only be able to engage in creative and critical thinking with the daily prompts, but they will also be encouraged to dig even deeper into understanding who they are, find the courage to share their true selves with their family, and see the world from many perspectives.
Let me tell you a little bit about our new website.
The landing page is where you can get an overview of our new guides and the many ways they can help you and your family cultivate creative habits at home this year. Along with a daily creative practice, each guide is filled with a rich and diverse book list, interesting and varied snack ideas, ways to extend the learning story for older kids, artist spotlight, curricular connections, and more.
Under the tab “Start Here” you will find our mission statement and thought process behind why we started this company and why we think this a childhood filled with creative art and play opportunities has benefits that will last a lifetime.
Our “Subscribe” tab is where you can learn more and compare our subscription service to our stand-alone shop. There are two ways you can buy our guides. One way is to purchase them in our shop. They are more expensive this way, but it also allows you to boy one month here and there throughout the year if you don’t think you will be using them consistently. The other way is to join our membership. This not only saves you money, but there are extra perks to being part of our membership family.
There are also “Free Resources” where we share some of our best tips and creative ideas, and a soon to come “Supply Shop”.
During these times when we are all spending much more time at home, our children will benefit so much from a calm, safe, creative setting that allows them the freedom to explore and truly be themselves. Without adults directing and hovering over them. Without worksheets and wrong answers. Think of our guides as a springboard and a support system as they transform your home into a place where hours of meaningful art and play happen organically throughout childhood and beyond.
Go check out The Creativity Project and let’s navigate this year together.
