Timeless advice on the importance of imaginative and creative play updated for a new generation of parents. 
Embrace family life with creativity at its heart. The Creative Family Manifesto is a guide to using the simple tools around you—your imagination, basic art supplies, household objects, and natural materials—to relax, play, and grow together as a family. When you learn to awaken your family’s creativity, wonderful things will happen: you’ll make meaningful connections with your children, your children’s imaginations will flourish, and you’ll learn to express love and gratitude for each other. This book is just what you need to get started.



Amanda Blake Soule is the creator of the popular blog SouleMama, which she began in 2005 as a way to share the creative journey of her family. That emphasis on creative exploration, family connection, and appreciate for nature is at the heart of her first three books—The Creative FamilyHandmade Home, and The Rhythm of Family (which she co-wrote with her husband, Steve). In 2012, Amanda started Taproot magazine, an ad-free print publication dedicated to exploring the topics of food, farm, family, and craft through art, photography, recipes, patterns, and personal narrative.

Amanda lives in Western Maine with her husband, five children, and a growing menagerie of farm animals in a 200-year-old farmhouse, on a homestead they are bringing back to life. Growing and making all manner of things in their days, they strive as a family to stay connected to one another and the Earth by bringing creativity into the everyday.
