What a true statement! Creativity does matter! I try to be creative, I want to be creative. Sometimes my creativity is quickly tossed in the fireplace, where it will never be seen by anyone, and sometimes with the right inspiration and instructions from others it will hang above my kitchen table forever. Instilling our kids with a creative sense, will help them achieve so much as they face problems and come up with solutions throughout their lives.
Crayola wants every child to be creatively alive, so they´re inviting parents "Inside the Crayon Box," for a special live chat with celebrities and trusted parenting experts that will inspire and spark ideas to expand your child´s creative thinking.
The first "Inside the Crayon Box" live chat is TODAY at 9 p.m. EST. Join Crayola and musician, children´s author and mom, Lisa Loeb for a 45-minute live streaming video chat on the Crayola Facebook Page. Lisa, best-known for her number one hit "Stay (I Missed You)," will share personal stories, practical advice and ways she brings a little creative play into every day for her daughter. Particpants will be able to ask Lisa their questions during the event.
I, unfortunately, have another event tonight (Relief Society birthday party!), so I won't be able to attend this live video chat. But I will be checking in later tonight to see what kind of tips and ideas were mentioned. Eventually when I have some time to sit down, I'll be watching the whole session on Crayola's Youtube channel. So if you also can't be there tonight for the live chat, you can watch it tomorrow or the next day or next week, on youtube.
How do you get the creative juices rolling with your kids?
