FREE Creativity Character Counts Study

When you think of good character you may not think of creativity as a character trait. Many people say that they aren’t creative, or that they don’t have a crafty bone in their body. Being creative isn’t always about being artistic or crafty. It is being able to think outside of the box, to solve problems and address things in creative ways when the need arises. It is a practical life skill that can be a lot of fun to work on with your children.

Creativity is problem solving:

Having creativity and being creative is a way to to teach your kids how to problem solve. This can come in handy with everyday life activities.

Do you feel like you are stuck in a rut with dinner and meals? Ask your children what they would like to eat, if they want to start helping meal plan and see what they come up with. You may have one child that is very organized and wants to write out a plan and prepare a grocery list. While another child may want to make a contest or cooking game out of it. Either way your dinner will be planned and that tackles one problem.

You can do the same thing with birthdays. Your whole family can work together to come up with some creative ideas to celebrate birthdays in a fun and unique way. Maybe your schedules are all over the place and you can’t celebrate it on the day. You will want to think of ways to pick a special time and place to celebrate. How fun would it be to include the whole family in celebrating with one another?

Are you sick of the same chore routine? You can also tackle this in a creative way when you put your minds together to come up with creative solutions to getting the house clean in a flash.

There are many everyday things that arise, that can use some creative thinking to make them easier and more doable to running a home. Some people are more creative than others. That’s why I enjoy these planners so much, because Felice gives tons of suggestions on how to teach the character trait in ways that involve the whole family.
