Nice to meet you! I’m Shannon
Hi and welcome to Oh Creative Day! It’s all kinds of awesome to see you round these parts.
I’m a mum. A teacher. An enthusiastic user of pom poms, PVA glue and paint.
Kidspot named me “A Crafty Mum Worth a Follow on Instagram.”
I’m a contributor at Mumtastic Australia where I share tips like 21 Ways To Prepare Your Child For Big School.
You can find all my Mumtastic articles here.
Brit + Co think that my Instagram account is one that Artsy Families Will Love.
I also talk craft and picture books over at Hello, Wonderful.
I’m featured in Twinkl’s Fun Things to Do to Keep Kids Entertained at Home blog, where you can find other brilliant ideas to keep children occupied whilst indoors!
Oh Creative Day is a place where whimsy and wisdom live and thrive!
I wish to raise curious and creative children who treasure books as magical portals to faraway places.
I believe that reading and creating are as important as breathing. Teaming picture books with creative projects is my superpower.
And I have created classes and blog posts so you can READ + CREATE with your family too!
Gosh there’s just so much more I want to say, but I know you’re busy. However, you’re most welcome to delve a little deeper into my personal background here and read this in-depth interview with me. Don’t forget you can also get in touch with by email and ask me anything.
Why did I start Oh Creative Day?
I’m not going to sugar coat it, having 3 children under 5 was no picnic. But I’ve used my blog as an outlet for my own creative pursuits and along the way developed some pretty nifty ideas (if I do say so myself) and I LOVE sharing these with like-minded parents and fellow educators.
Truth be told, I’ve always thought I had a book in me (it’s a work in progress) and Oh Creative Day was originally born out of that. But now it’s morphed into something way bigger than I could have imagined; it’s a place where I encourage others to focus on the process of creation
I’ve worked hard to use my experiences as a teacher and busy mum to create useful and fun resources for parents who are worried about their children’s school readiness. Because what it boils down to is that all parents just want to give their kids the best start in life.
