This week I shared in the facebook group an interview with Lindsay Jane Hunter, Theraputic Art and Drama Practitioner. We chatted about creativity, it's importance and how to achieve creativity with limited resources and effort. If you missed it, you can see it here.
Studies have shown that even a small amount of creativity each day can boost well-being and increase feelings of positivity (Conner et al. 2016). So I really encourage you to find a way to both be creative yourself and encourage your children to do so. I feel after 5 weeks of staying at home I am starting to feel the need for some new ideas and I am really happy to share with you a list from Lindsay which will hopefully provide you with some fun creativity ideas for you to try:
My main realisations from the interview were that; creativity isn't always messy, you can be creative with very little resources and saying "yes" more (when you are able to) will often lead to some really imaginative and fun activities. I really hope that you find this useful. If you have a go at any of these, please feel free to share them in the facebook group!

Keep well and stay safe
In my blog, I reflect honestly about my experiences of trying to enhance the well-being of my own children.
