Instead of just sitting around watching TV or playing the same old games, families can get together for some real fun with these creative-boosting activities. Arts and crafts, unique toys and games, cooking and these other adventures will get the creative juices flowing.
Arts & crafts
Arts and crafts projects are fantastic hands-on activities that are fun for the entire family. Children love to creating items they can use for themselves or give as gifts. This weekend, set aside some time to get creative with your kids.

Creative toys and games
Look for games and toys that inspire kids to think, plan, construct and create. We have put together a collection of toys and games that your family can play at dinner, in the backyard or on the road.
The kitchen is full of creative-boosting activities kids love — and they teach valuable skills, too. From the time your kids are toddlers, they can help prepare, cook and serve family meals.
