Created by artist Bruce Van Patter in 2003, and held every year during the last full week of September, “National Keep Kids Creative Week” is an event that focuses on ways parents and teachers can get kids away from their devices and into creating something.
At The Note House, I believe in nurturing young minds through creativity, and this week offers the perfect opportunity to do just that.
Following are some ways to join in on the creative fun:
🎨 Unlocking Imagination: Encouraging kids to express themselves through art and crafts not only enhances their creativity but also fosters problem-solving skills. Set up a dedicated art corner with supplies like colored pencils, markers, and sketchbooks.
📚 Reading Wonderland: Dive into the world of stories! Reading not only broadens horizons but also sparks imaginative thinking. Visit your local library or create a cozy reading nook at home. Explore different genres together!
🏞️ Nature's Canvas: Take a nature walk. Collect leaves, rocks, or flowers. Back at home, use these items for an art project. A leaf collage or a rock-painting session can be both fun and inspiring.
🖍️ Free Printable Alert! To make this Keep Kids Creative Week extra special, I'm offering a FREE downloadable creativity letter writing activity when you sign up. Print as many as you need! If your child loves it, I offer personalized coloring letter pages as well. If you are already a VIP Member of The Note House News, check your inbox for your free printable!
So, parents, grandparents, teachers, and creative souls alike, let's make this week one to remember. Keep those creative juices flowing and see where your child's imagination takes them.
Wishing you a colorful, imaginative, and joy-filled week ahead!
