Imagine you are an artist and these words are the colours on your palette. You are going to mix the words up, experiment with them, learn new skills and create something unique to you.
All our activities can be done alone or with your family and friends. They are fun for people of all ages !
There is no right way or wrong way of doing our activities. Pick and choose the ones you like best, you can dip into any activity anywhere at anytime.
At Five Cowries we have one rule : HAVE FUN !
HOW CREATIVE ARE YOU?
Are you COLLABORATIVE, INQUISITIVE, DISCIPLINED, IMAGINATIVE, PERSISTENT ? Learners of all ages can ask themselves these questions.
You could make your own wheel for yourself as a carer or an educator and make a simpler one for the children in your community.
Colour in the segment of the circle that best represents your creative abilities. How many segments will you colour in? Your level of ability grows outwards from the centre of the wheel.
MAKE A NOTE OF IT!
What inspires you? What have you seen, touched, heard, smelled or tasted that was amazing?
Look up, look around you, and get into the habit of making a note of it. You can do this with drawing or writing, or both. Artists, scientists, doctors all observe, note down, ask questions, and then respond with a creative solution.
Are you ready?
LETS GO !
