Ignite Your Ideas: Creativity for Kids is the eighth book written by multiple award-winning author and gifted education specialist, Dr. Joanne Foster. This book is for children aged ten and up. However, parents, teachers, and others will also discover important information and abundant strategies to fortify their own creativity, and to inspire the young people in their lives. With its convenient format and relatable content, readers will soon discover why creativity matters, how it develops, how to nurture it, how family members can support one another, what to do if creativity is a struggle, and what's needed most in order for creativity to ignite from within the environment and from within the recesses of one's mind. The various chapters can be read consecutively or not, but the book culminates with detailed descriptions of 100 sure-fire ways to spark creativity across many different areas of interest (alongside tips for organizing and optimizing these ways). Within the book, Dr. Foster also provides current resources, thought-provoking quotes, a mini-glossary, surprising avenues of discovery, reassurances, and other helpful information that will entice kids to extend their curiosity and ability levels; explore the wonders of the world; and become happily creative at home, school, and elsewhere.
This book is not another craft book for children. It is bursting with ideas designed to fuel possibilities--glimmers, flashes, intentions, inventions, and collaborations--through the arts, technology, science, and other domains. Ignite Your Ideas is about finding and seizing diverse opportunities for learning, fulfillment, and creative expression, and it includes countless suggestions for initiating, participating in, sharing, and building upon activities. In the same way that the author's award-winning Bust Your BUTS shines a bright light on procrastination, and energizes kids (and adults), Ignite Your Ideas enlightens readers, and motivates them, too. The pages are ablaze with understandings and strategies that generate exciting, accessible choices, and joyful creative experiences for kids and their families. This book is the perfect match to help ignite meaningful and imaginative ideas.
