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.
- 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.
