Being creative means solving a problem in a new way. It means changing your perspective. Being creative means taking risks and ignoring doubt and facing fears. It means breaking with routine and doing something different for the sake of doing something different. Being creative means not being afraid to do something completely out of the box maybe even get messy. I love giving the kids the same items and seeing how different they turn out. It is great how different we all are and being able to embrace that is a great thing.
