January is International Creativity Month. Consider this a challenge: make creativity a part of each week during the month of January. Then share your creative venture tagging it with #Cre8tiveSpark. Or using this link and inserting your efforts.
In the latest issue of Bright Ideas (click here to access it) I shared my belief in fostering creativity with any age. If you find these ideas helpful, please subscribe here.
Opening up to the creative process lets dreams take flight. Consider including a variety of creative opportunities this month: movement, visual arts, music, cooking.
With older adults, here is a starter list of songs and resources about art.
If you aren’t on Twitter, consider sharing how you met the #Cre8tiveSpark challenge by answering on Facebook each Friday. Each week do something creative yourself or offer a creative opportunity for others. Share is on the Music Sparks Facebook page. Together we can create a fun list of creative activities.
