CREATIVITY KIT

Not feeling creative? Maybe we can help. Try one of these ideas to jump start your inner creativity!

Buy the BIG box of crayons. Take them home and gloat over them like a pirate with his treasure. Which one is your favorite?

Go to the park. Lie down in the grass. Look at the sky. What shapes do the clouds form today?

Take a sheet of newspaper. Tear it in little pieces. Throw the pieces into the air. Now pick out a few pieces at random. Can you make a poem out of the words that you find on scraps?

Write a poem on a lighter than air balloon Release it in the park.

TAKE A LOOK AT YOURSELF

Look into a mirror
-really, place yourself
in front of a mirror,
look into your eyes and then...
talk to your inner self.
Decide to accentuate
the good
that goes beyond
what others see.
Talk to yourself
you believe
