Creativity Exercise: Kiss a Bubble

My sister Eva will be happy to tell you that I am the creative one in the family. My sister Eva is wrong.

Here's an idea she stole from someone (creative theft, the sign of a creative genius), and gave to me: When you're blowing bubbles with kids, encourage them to kiss the bubbles. It adds an entire new layer of active fun to the game.

(What? Did you say you never blow bubbles? When did you stop? And why?)

Fortunately, even without bubbles, this is still a great creativity exercise. Take something you do all the time, and change the sensory experience. Add music, a touch, a taste, a smell. A kiss. You figure it out. I'm going to blow bubbles.
