Tomorrow, May 30, is National Creativity Day. This day is very special because not only does it give us a reason to be creative, but it allows our imagination to run free. There are no rules when it comes to being creative, and we have a couple ideas for how to celebrate National Creativity Day with your kiddos.
Write a Play
Lately, we have all been spending a lot of time inside as social distancing measures are being taken across the state. Use this time inside to write a play with your kiddos. Get out a notebook or your laptop and actually write out scenes and dialog. Let your little ones act out what they come up with. Let them imagine different characters, the plot line, the conflict and they can even figure out which of their favorite actors can play which parts! Your job is to be the scribe for all of their crazy ideas. Once the play is complete, print out the script and record your little ones as they act out their masterpiece. Don’t forget to save the script and video, and they will serve as precious memories to look upon later.
Make friendship bracelets
If your kiddos are missing their friends, help them make friendship bracelets to send to them. All you need is string, beads and a some bracelet making tutorials. Click here to watch a video that will show you how to make four different kinds of bracelets. Once all the bracelets have been made, reach out to the parents of your kiddos’ friends and ask for their address so you can send them in the mail.
Get In The Kitchen
One of the best places to get creative is in the kitchen. Whether you are making some sweet treats or just making dinner, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get creative with your kids in the kitchen. Find a recipe that will work with your child’s skill level, and ask them to help you make it! Your little one might even discover a new love to cooking. If you want to kick it up a notch with your older kiddos, try finding an international recipe that neither of you have ever made before. This will test your cooking skills, and maybe you’ll find a new favorite recipe!
