What if you could bottle up the creativity and put it in a can? Well Faber Castell, the pencil and school supply manufacturer that has been around over 200 years has done just that. They’ve created these Creativity Cans which are chalk full of arts and crafts supplies that kids can have fun with for hours.
All of the Creativity Cans come with the same art supplies, but what teachers love about them is how creative the kids become. Despite being stocked with the exact same arts and crafts supplies, no two projects that kids have created have been the same.
The Creativity Can promotes creativity and time away from technology and screens which is healthy for all children. Not only that but in classrooms, after school programs and even amongst friends, kids are just figuring out what to do with the cans themselves, no instructions, they just create. Kids can create solo projects or collaborate together and make even more creative projects.
Faber Castell has also created the giant Creativity Can to encourage team building amongst teachers, administrators and other adults. The giant cans make for great team building projects.
The regular sized cans come in six different flavors, it’s like soup for your brain. The varieties are; Build, Motion, Critters, Art, Music and Stories.
