You can teach them to paint, to read, to write, to build. . . . . . . . but creativity. . . . . that's something that can't be taught. That's something different. Creativity is something that has to come from within. And everyone is creative in their own way. One person might be creative at building things or engineering. Another person may be creative at cooking. Yet another person may be creative at writing or drawing. Some people are creative "planners." The people who are planners might not consider themselves "creative", but it takes creativity to come up with a plan that makes sense and to put it all into an order that other people can understand.

What creative ways do you and/or your kids spend boring days?
