I’m so excited to announce the launch of a new business, a new website, and THREE new summer camp guides!! First, the business. As you know, my friend and colleague, Shannon from Hatch, and I collaborated in the Spring on 7 (seven!) weeks of learning-at-home guides. We decided to turn it into a new business, and The Creativity Project was born! The website is brand new and we are initially launching with these Summer Camp Guides, but we will add new learning guides, video content, and a membership in the Fall. We are really excited!
Let me tell you a little more about our Summer Camp Guides.
We are all being very cautious about where we send our kids this summer, and lots of camps are closed. This makes it very hard on parents to find ways to entertain and engage their kids through these long months. It feels really good to drop your child off at art camp and know that they are spending their day steeped in creativity and imagination, while keeping all the mess away from your home.
So now what? How will you keep your summer creative without being able to drop your child off at your wonderful, local art studio?
This is where we come in!
Our Summer Camp Guides are called “Camp Creative Kid” and we designed each week to feel like you and your child were spending it with us. It’s the same way we would organize our camp days if we had kids coming to our studios. We’d start the day off with a creative invitation or an easy art prompt, then dig into a bigger project or continue one from the day before, and wind down with a play idea or some books. While all along encouraging our students to develop their own good ideas and use materials at had to create and invent.
Our camp guides are 26 full-color pages with beautiful photos, simple materials, and loving attention to detail. You will also get a book list, snack and play ideas, curricular connections, recipes, and more! Each week you will find 20 ideas, from prompts to bigger projects. And each day there is a toddler variation and a tween project. There is something for the whole family

These guides are a downloadable PDF product that you can print and keep forever.
Our hope is that we can help you develop creative habits at home this summer and nurture your child’s creativity in a simple, stress-free way!
