Need creative activities for indoor play? Us too!
Truth be told, this creative activity for playing indoors came from my husband.
As I was upstairs checking emails, the rest of the family was downstairs building an imaginative mini-golf course out of train tracks. – I know it! Super clever. My mind was blown.
I knew right away that this revolutionary activity needed to be shared!

Creative activities for indoor play evolves in many ways:
Imaginative play may involve painting.
Play may use clay and texture.
Ideas may begin with a question to prompt new ideas.
Play may even involve items from a DIY art cart.
Imaginative play may include sensory exploration.
Regardless of the supplies, creative activities come from taking an idea and being able to design a product on your terms.
This indoor mini-golf course made with train tracks is right on track to innovational thinking and learning through play.
A creative idea typically begins with a problem.
