I Am
Creative

Did you know that creative thinking is now the #1 skill needed in the workforce? Well my ‘job’ right now is to play, explore, imagine and have creative experiences every day. I shared my creative experiences with you in my new book, I AM CREATIVE. I hope you like it!

Hello!

I'm Shawn "The Creative Kid"

I am here to help America be more creative! This fun book has the 16 ways I show creativity throughout my day. You will see what I do and how I think and it will remind you of what your little ones do too!  It can help you be more creative as well. We all are creative and we are excited to share our journey!

Incorporates the 16 Diamond Tool of Creative Thinking

Even though children harbor these creative abilities innately, you can still strengthen these skills within them and redevelop them within yourself. Here are some of the tools you will learn and use:

‘I Believe’ (Foundational Beliefs Systems)
Do you believe they are creative? The first step to improving creative thinking is to understand what creativity is, know how to develop it and believe THEY ARE CREATIVE! So are you!

Return to the ‘Wonder Years’ (Curiosity)
Children arrive on Earth very curious but this vital skill for creative thinking lowers with familiarity and routine. Improve their desire see beyond convention. Learn how to ask better questions and discover how the most awe inspiring ideas come from the most mundane of objects.

Paying Attention Pays Off (Sensory Observation)
Creative thinking arises from knowledge. Through observation of the senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, smell) and cognition, they are able to increase the amount of data available for creative thinking. Strengthen their senses and multisensory experiences for more connections within their brains and across subjects.

We normally ask, “What do you see in the clouds?” In this case “What do you see in the bushes? ”

Being able to see recognizable objects in random things is a #creative skill! #perspective
