“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
– Sylvia Plath

Today’s Excerpt:

When do you doubt your ability to be creative?

When you aren’t feeling a creative spark, try one of these activities you feel drawn to and see if you get inspired:

  • Make a collage with old magazines, ads, or pictures
  • Act out your favorite story
  • Building with blocks or Legos
  • Gather natural materials like leaves, flowers, or pebbles to make art
  • Put on a puppet show using socks, paper bags, or craft sticks.
  • Create with Playdough or clay
  • Play dress-up with clothes, accessories, and items you typically wouldn’t wear
  • Dance it out!
  • Make a scavenger hunt with clues around the house or yard
  • Use recyclable materials or “junk” like cardboard boxes, bottle caps, and paper rolls to create something
  • Transform old socks into puppets and put on a show
  • Use a variety of fruits, vegetables, and other food items to make edible art sculptures and then have a snack
