Creativity is a path to happiness. It also is an essential aspect of innovation. As kids many of us are naturally creative. Unfortunately, our creativity tends to be eliminated as we enter school.
The good news is that we can reclaim our creativity. In addition, we can help our kids preserve and develop their creative capacity.
Here are ten (hopefully fun) activities that can boost your creativity. Using each group of words, compose a short story, skit, poem, song, movie, dance, etc. Let your mind roam free. If this becomes hilarious and a bit chaotic, so be it! Maybe you could try this exercise the next time you need an icebreaker in the office, the classroom, or anywhere else. Plus, you might learn a thing or two by looking up the meanings of any people, places, or things you don't know about. The more we learn, the more creative we can be!
