Create! Inspire! Motivate & Participate!
Toss Rocks! Gather rocks or stones from nearby pastures or fields (ask permission if it’s not your property, of course!) Then stack ’em, sort ’em, and create all sorts of lovely landscaping designs! See here: you never know where you’ll find stone … or stackers!
Spruce Up A Room! Need a little refreshment? Give one of your most-used spaces a fresh coat of paint, hang a new curtain, or switch out a wall hanging. Ask my my family: I move things around all the time. Sometimes they don’t know where the couch will be tomorrow! Here’s an example of a quick fix.
New Fabric for Inspiration. Do you have a scrap fabric heap? You don’t have to sew to take advantage of lovely colors, textures, and weaves! Visit your local fabric store for inspiration and creative ideas. And yes, definitely take a few people with you. Fabric stores are better than candy stores!
Get Goopy! There’s nothing like a messy and magical project with little kids. Let ’em make goop. They’ll love it — and you, for letting them do it! Here’s how to make gobbledy-goop.
Cookie Monsters. Bake a sweet treat for you, your neighbors, your family, or your coworkers. A few minutes in the kitchen will bring a smile to everyone’s face (including your own!). And here’s the winning baked good … our favorite cookie recipe for The Best Cookies, ever!
And whatever you decide to do today, tomorrow, or during the weekend ahead … be sure to involve everyone. Work, play, and create together, for that is how memories are made, lessons are learned, and skills are perfected for a life of productivity.
Go forth and create!
