The Joy Journal is a beautifully illustrated guide with creative ideas and activities to make and do with children A beautiful handbook on how to inject mindfulness and craft into mealtimes, bath-times, journeys and play dates and to resist (as much as possible!) the temptation to succumb to screen time. The Joy Journal showcases fifty activities that channel mindful ways of exploring new experiences. Each activity has been tried and tested by mum of two, Laura Brand, who shares the triumphs and often happy accidents of negotiating playtime that is stimulating for children and adults alike. Chapters take you through the seasons, with indoor, outdoor and on-the-go activities that are easy and fun every day. Laura describes the ingredients and method for each activity, but also how long it will take, how long children will be engaged for, parental enjoyment and, crucially, potential for mess. The Joy Journal will arm you with a variety of fun, focussed tasks made with store cupboard and easily foraged supplies, from Moon Sand and Flower Ice to Bath Bundles and Coloured Foam, these are activities that you can turn to time and again.
