The Joy Journal for Magical Everyday Play is an activity guide with creative ideas of things to make and do with children.
Laura Brand is an illustrator and mum of two. She shares her crafty experiments and creative ideas for everyday play on her platform The Joy Journal and has led workshops for children and adults at Fearne Cotton's Happy Place Festival, Port Elliot and others. Laura lives in the countryside with her husband, their two daughters, two dogs, two cats and chickens. Home is a place of muddy boots, abundant jars of play dough and hand-painted 'welcome' banners above the doors. With chaos and calm in equal measure, Laura aspires to guide her children in the joy of play as well as mindfulness.
