I don’t have a creative bone in my body!
Most people think that we’re either born with creative talents or we’re not. News flash…creativity is a skill more than it is an inborn talent. And, it all starts in the home where parents encourage creative thinking and expression with their kids. See creativity isn’t only limited to being an artist or a musician. It’s the skill of creative thinking where the serious problem-solving magic happens. And that is a skill that kids naturally master.
Who doesn’t want to be a superhero? Forget the traditional super heros, we asked 15 kids if they could have any super power in the whole wide world, what would it be, and what would they be called? And as the saying goes, kids do say the darnedest things. Below are just a few of the responses. And as it turns out, these new super heroes that they created are actually solvers of many of today’s world problems, from fashion disasters and unsightly landscaping to pollution and crime.
Fashion Girl can magically turn any fashion disaster into haute couture so we all look fabulous all the time.
Periwinkle uses her wand to give you fairy wings. So you can fly. And who doesn’t want to be able to fly?
Green Arrow shoots, well, green arrows, of course, to clean up trash and pollution.
White Tiger Boy is a shapeshifter who fights crime. Shapeshifter? I was immediately given a crash course by an 8 year old, about this apparently most common phenomenon…
Nature Girl has the power to make all of your trees and flowers and shrubs grow healthy. Who needs Lowes?
Silence Girl who through her eyes has the power to silence anyone or anything. How brilliant! I can think lots of ways to use this power. Oh the world problems this power could solve!
We have launched our newest game, STORY CRAZE, on Kickstarter. It’s for kids, so, who better to help us create it but kids? While we had the game concept, the kids came up with the content and then went to town creating stories together. Below is just one of the stories. It’s the tale of Nature Green Arrow.
If in fact, the world is going to end one day, I rather like the idea that it’s by exploding grapes, don’t you? At least it would be a sweet and healthy ending. LOL!
Get your kids solving problems with creative thinking. It’s as simple as asking them the super hero question we asked. It’s sure to spark all kinds of creativity and your kids are gonna love it!
We are thrilled to help you and your children have more enriched and fulfilling life experiences and to learn something about yourself and each other. We hope you’ll join the STORY CRAZE mission to spark imagination, creativity, and conversation in children.
