Spark Creativity with an Invitation to Draw

Invitations to Draw are a wonderful way to spark creativity in young children!

We are so excited to share with you the newest book by our friend and fellow blogger, Jean Van’t Hul. Jean has an impressive background in art history and studio art. She is a mother of two and writes a blog called The Artful Parent where she shares her amazing insights, ideas, and beautiful photos demonstrating simple process-focused art especially appropriate for young children. And we are thrilled to share with you her latest book release titled Invitation to Draw: 99 Drawing Prompts to inspire Kids’ Creativity. 

Encouraging creative self-expression

Invitations to draw are a wonderful way to engage children and encourage creative self-expression. The drawing prompts in Invitation to Draw are open-ended and the creative possibilities are endless! If you are looking for a summer boredom buster or something fun for any time of the year, this book is a must-have. Not only will children have fun, but they will be doing so in a way that expands their creativity!

Using their imagination

Each drawing prompt invites children to use their BIG imaginations to create! Invitations to draw might pose a question for children to ponder, an idea for children to wonder about, or inspires the children to tell a story as they add to their drawing prompt.

Multiple ways to create

With no specific set of instructions, children are encouraged to use their inner creativity to make their unique designs. And we especially love that the paper is high quality and the pages are perforated making the prompts long-lasting and easy to share. 

Something special just for YOU!

Jean has thoughtfully given our readers an exclusive drawing Invitation to Draw printable! You will be able to experience first-hand just how neat this book is and why we love it SO much. We hope it will inspire you to pick up a copy (or two) of your own! Happy creating!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
