You want to add 
beauty and richness to your days with little onesbut don't know where to start. 

Children love to create. And there has to be more to children's arts and crafts than paper, glue, and glitter.

You love your children's artwork, but you're overwhelmed with paper crafts and tired of throwing them away when the kids aren't looking.

You've been on Pinterest searching and searching for something (anything!) beyond the handprint Turkey placemat for a Thanksgiving craft. You're desperate for personalized Christmas gift ideas but want something more than a boring ornament or photo mug.

You want to spend time crafting with your child, but stringing noodle necklaces isn't quite your thing. 

Well, there IS a BETTER way.  

Quality time with your child
is an investment that
pays off, BIG TIME

It's no secret that childhood flies by. With every trip around the sun, your child is one year older. There's incredible growth, big milestones, and the challenge of juggling it all without missing out on this precious time. 

The early years are filled with the joy and wonder of discovering the world. When a baby discovers her hands for the first time, it's squeal-worthy! Then we have first words, first steps, and so many more wonderful celebrations. 

Whatever parenting philosophy you follow, there is one secret to success that applies to all children: Your children need to spend quality time with you.

    Children have an innate desire to create beautiful things. Creativity is the truest form of self expression, and children benefit greatly from a wide variety of creative experiences. 
  • check
    Children are capable of much more than you might expect.  They are constantly learning about the world around them, and it's up to you to provide opportunities for growth and challenge. 
  • check
    Children crave connection with caregivers.  Quality time supports a child's emotional health and overall happiness. A solid rhythm that allows for regular intervals of one-on-one interaction provides much-needed stability and predictability to a child's life. 

Every moment counts. 

Instead of worrying about how many minutes we have in a day, let's focus on turning those minutes into memorable moments

Finding a lull in the busyness of a day to share a quiet moment with your child is where beautiful moments take root. It's where great, honest conversations have the time and space to unfold.

Connection doesn't happen when left to chance.

We define ourselves by what we spend our time doing. There are so many opportunities to be distracted, and it takes intentional effort to carve out time for what matters the most.

What the experts have to say: 

"We are careful not to dilute life..."

"We believe that children are human beings at their best and sweetest, but also at their weakest and least wise. We are careful not to dilute life for them, but to present such portions to them in such quantities as they can readily receive.” ~ Charlotte Mason

"Meaning hides in repetition..."

"Meaning hides in repetition:  We do this every day or every week because it matters.  We are connected by this thing we do together. We matter to one another. In the tapestry of childhood, what stands out is not the splashy, blow-out trip to Disneyland but the common threads that run throughout and repeat:  the family dinners, nature walks, reading together at bedtime, Saturday morning pancakes.” ~ Kim John Payne, Simplicity Parenting
