Creating at Home

Creating at home ideas

Expressing creativity is an ongoing need for all of us. We think of creativity as a thinking muscle in our brains! It’s a personal way to express our thoughts, ideas, and imaginings so we’ve created a printable CReATE STUDIO #30daysofreuse Coloring Calendar to inspire creativity through reuse every day. It also builds awareness about the possibilities the things tend to cast-off. Download our calendar to explore a different project idea for each day of the month with a bonus day, just for fun!
