FamilyFun Feature: Storytelling Crafts

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

Hello lovely readers,

The September issue of FamilyFun is very special to me because my book, Show Me a Story, is featured, along with my sweet pies and my pregnant self!  I am so honored to have the chance to share some of my projects with FF readers, and thrilled that it is during the back-to-school storytelling season.

The pages feature some inspiring projects for encouraging storytelling, some more shots of my kiddos, and extra details about my book.

In the above photo, my girls and I are playing with Story Stones, one of my favorite projects from Show Me a Story.

Hooray!

Emily

Beach Art

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

As you head off for your summer vacations, this is just a little reminder to make art with the shells, sand, seaweed stones, and other bits and bobs that you find a the beach.  Line them up on the sand, make collages, organize by color, and build sculptures.

Don’t forget to take photographs so you can remember all of the beauty that surrounded you!

Cheers,

Emily

5 Bright Spots: Gardening with Kids

Friday, May 31st, 2013

1.  These (see above) Garden Markers made out of rocks are bright, punchy, simple, and SO cheery!

2. Spread some seed love with Dana’s DIY Shredded  Paper Seed Starters.

3. Mark special occasions, moments, and memories with lovely Garden Stones. I especially love the fern prints!

4. My friend Annie, creator and author of Alphabet Glue, offered this wonderful guest post on The Crafty Crow.  Make super sweet Origami Planting Pots with her!  And, smile.

5. After all of their hard work in the garden, have your children cozy up under this snug, easy to construct, garden tent.

Have fun outside!
