If you follow me on Facebook, you may have noticed that I’ve been posting a lot of kids’ creativity quotes lately. Each day I’ve been making a new creativity quote graphic to share and these have been some of the most popular posts on my page.
So I thought I’d pull them together in a blog post to make it easy to refer to when you need a little creative inspiration for yourself or as a parent.
Some of these quotes refer to children’s creativity specifically, most are more general.
