I’m working with Workman Publishing to share this giveaway!
My Beautiful Book of Oops! is so much fun. My daughter has loved going through each page, exploring each activity and making the book her own. This fun and creative journal allows her to let her imagination run wild and turn things that would normally be looked at as an “oops” and thrown away into something beautiful and fun. Encouraging creativity and imagination in your kids is so important. Giving them space where they can create and “be themselves” without fear of criticism or disappointment. I love giving my kids craft supplies and just letting them create whatever they want and seeing the fun things that are in their imaginations.
A Scribble it, Smear it, Fold it, Tear it Journal for Young Artists
MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS! is a hands-on journal that’s designed to help young hands and minds turn an “oops” into art. The friendly green alligator—familiar to readers of Beautiful Oops!—prompts the reader to imagine the possibilities of a bent page. Decorate a smudge. Play with splats and spills. Even complete a poem that was accidentally ripped in half.
Filled with folded, crumpled, die-cut, and lift-the-flap pages, the activities will challenge the reader’s sense of play as they draw in, paint on, tear up, smudge, and ultimately artistically wreck the book. MY BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL OOPS! champions imagination, play, and the courage to express oneself. It’s about self-forgiveness and about turning off that inner critic that clamors for perfection. And it’s about freedom—the freedom to be creative and follow curiosity wherever it goes. That’s a lesson to celebrate!
