Parenting is hard. Encouraging your kid's creativity doesn't have to be.

This self-paced course is for you if:

  • You are a parent or interact with kiddos often
  • You want to make creative play in your home a bit easier
  • You want to teach your little ones about color and the value of creativity
  • You would like guidance on what sort of supplies you actually need
  • You are looking for some real, kid-tested creative activities to try
  • You simply want some encouragement of your own (you're doing a good job already, I promise)

About Elise

I am not an artist or a child-development specialist but I am a creative person and a mom. I have been making things since I was a kid and sharing DIY projects online for over a decade. 

Crafting with my kids was one of the things I was most excited for when I became a parent and four years in, it remains my favorite part of our days. My daughter (now four) "painted" for the first time at five months old and we haven't stopped since.

I wrote this course to share what has worked well for my family and highlight some creative projects that we love. I think you'll find my teaching style clear, approachable and encouraging and I know you'll finish this course ready to dive right in with your own kiddos.

I can't wait to show you more.
