Where do you discover new kid-friendly crafts?
I don't know where my kid craft ideas come from. It is a combination of what my kids want to do and what we have on hand. Pulling out the play-doh, paints and crayons never gets old. Mostly I let their imagination lead the way. For holiday projects I might have directions.
What's one creative product you would recommend to all moms?
Every child should have play-doh, paper, crayons and paints at their disposal.
How do you encourage your child to explore their creativity?
For the most part I just make supplies and time to be creative accessible. I try not to obsess about the mess. I encourage the kiddos to do their thing and I try not to control the final product. Even when we go to story time and their is a craft with an example final product, I let my kids do their thing. I see a lot of other mom's moving eyes, and making sure it looks just like the sample. I don't believe that the end product is important, I believe it is the child's experience that is important. A lot of my kids related projects can be found in my project gallery (http://www.balancinghome.com/portfolio/for-the-kiddos)
