Creative Inspirations #1

One of the things we like to do each month is to get creative with simple words. 
It is absolutely amazing what kind of stories and activities a person can come up with when offered an open-ended idea.

Supplies needed: Drawing & craft supplies


The two words for this month are:


 Butterflies & Sizzle  


What can be done with the words?


These words can be used alone, or mixed and matched in any way to inspire stories, and then expressed in the form of a poem, diorama, dance, song, musical composition, skit, a dramatic expression, sculpture, a structure of some kind, or something else of the person's choosing. 

Tips & Suggestions

 Creativity is the main goal for this activity, there aren't any limits.

Use a thesaurus to find different ways to use the words. Use related words too.

Anything can be written, but don’t forget that pictures and actions can tell a story too. 

A story can be recorded with an audio/video device.

A great way to combine multiple recording methods is to narrate an illustrated story and capture it all on an audio/video device so it can be enjoyed again later!

Play with this activity inside or out!

If you need some inspiration, consider the following ideas:

Tell a story about a day in the life of a butterfly through a dance, song, an expressed action, etc..

Describe the word sizzle through an action, a drawing, a musical composition, words (spoken or written), or dramatic expression.

Draw on a personal experience about either of these words. Something you saw, felt, touched, heard, etc..
