  Constructive Use of Time

Creative Activities | Young person spends three or more hours per week in lessons or practice in music, theater, or other arts.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Hand down a hobby.  Teach a young person a skill, such as quilting, carpentry, or gardening.
  • Help your children – at every age – find positive outlets for their creative energy.  This might include classes, crafts, physical activities, drama, or more.
  • If you played an instrument when you were younger, take a refresher course.  Then set a good example and practice often.  Or join a choir, try out for a play, pick up a paintbrush, or write a poem.  Share your excitement with your children.
