Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

While we were watching Modern Family or juggling with errand schedules, superstar mommy bloggers were crafting superlative projects for their kids. However, this is no time for jealousy or envy; twenty of those generous moms have consented to share their favorite creations with less dynamic folks like us. Hand in Hand features a pleasingly diverse mix of techniques, materials, colors, and styles for a range of ages.

Michelle Marozik

From the Publisher
“What is more beautiful than an afternoon spent teaching a child to create, to be creative, to express his or her own unique vision? I don't do it enough, and the stories from these talented women--inspired mothers--inspire me to do better. Not only is this a book of tutorials for fun crafts to do as a family, it is a collection of unique perspectives on the drive to create, the joy of involving children in creativity, and approaches to balancing motherhood and art.” --Aesthetic Nest

“The projects in the book are simple for little hands and entertaining enough for older kids. What is completely unique about this book (in comparison to other kids crafting books that I can recall) is the fact that the projects are created by 20 extremely creative mothers (many well known in the online blogging world). Not only that, but they share their stories of creativity and how they relate to their children...The projects are simple but fun. Anyone can tackle them.” --A Little Hut

“The book is full of fabulous and creative DIY idea...Even if you don't have kids, this book is full of fabulous ideas and great inspiration - to use yourself or with the children in your life.” --The Creative Place

    Lots of great kid's crafts!

    Hand in Hand , written by Jenny Doh and published by Lark Crafts, has gathered together kid’s crafting ideas from twenty of the top parenting bloggers. There are so many excellent suggestions of ways to connect with your children through creative play and crafts. The projects run the gamut from a mom who hangs on to her children’s outgrown clothing to make special keepsakes to making potato print ornaments to decorate the house with, not just at the winter holidays, but all year long!

    I enjoyed seeing all the photos of the moms with their children making all kind of homemade fun and just loving on each other. When my daughter first looked through it, she decided we should make the Cardboard Cityscape, which is made from recycled boxes with cellophane added for the windows. Add some paint, and you have yourself some awesome looking skyscrapers, perfect for playing with dolls. Hand in Hand was filled with delightful ideas from start to finish.
