Where do you discover new kid-friendly crafts?

my daily missive from martha stewart's craft department, the magazine 'mollie makes', books of all sorts, or even something as simple as a walk through the woods, all spark creativity.

What's one creative product you would recommend to all moms?

a well-stocked art supplies cabinet.

How do you encourage your child to explore their creativity?

i leave them to it...

i simply put art supplies of all sorts within easy reach. then, i give them lots of time to do with it what they will. provide assistance, if necessary.

and, never fail to be amazed.
