I love to talk to kids about creativity.  All of my favorite teachers growing up were the ones that loved creativity, even if the assignment wasn’t perfectly met, a crazy fun writing idea got a little bit of extra attention.

In my chats with the fifth and sixth grades at Meadowlark elementary in Great Falls, I tried to get the kids to really think outside of what they’re used to.  They work together to create a brand new superhero, then I help a couple of volunteers come up with a story about how their new heroes handle a situation I come up with.  Some of the kids are so creative I can only hope they stick with writing.  Others are a little more timid, but we have a blast either way!

If you have a group or class and would like some new blood to come in and kill an 45 minutes or so, let me know.  I would love to continue the fun!!
