Exploring Creativity

One year at camp during crafts time, the helpers poured uncooked macaroni noodles onto the table in a large pile. "Make anything you want out of these", one said. Glue, glitter spray and paper were provided, It was strangely quiet as children helped themselves. The children created different items. Mainly small items.

One boy who had taken a good sized pile of macaroni was creating a model of a car. It was elaborate with all kinds of details. And the car was big. Time was up for crafts and the other children went onto games in the next room. The boy still worked and was left to work spraying the gold glitter at the end on his car. Creative efforts should be enjoyed especially in summertime. 

Let each child have free time to find out what creative talent God has placed inside. Seeds of creativity will grow with time and a bit of encouragement.
