Simple project with kids

World Building, Writing a Book and Sharing with Your Kids

When I started writing the second book in my Cinderella's Secret Diaries series, an idea popped into my mind and I ran with it: How could I share with my two children the creative process I journeyed on in writing a book? What if I asked them to draw pictures for me? The process was extremely simple and went like this: I had some old business cards lying around that I wrote the names of characters and locations on. Over the course of a week, I would hand one business card to my son or daughter each night and then would ask them to draw the person or place onto the page as they saw it.
