“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seems obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.” Steve Jobs
Every 8 weeks I work to create a new environment for elementary kids to come and learn about the love of Jesus. Sometimes the environment becomes a futuristic space station, other times we step aboard a pirate ship. These creative themes excite the kids to come and learn and give teachers a platform to bring the truth alive in the mind of a child. As much as I love doing this for the kids, it is really time for me to start finding a team to work together in creating these environments. Paulo Coelho said, “Everybody has a creative potential and from the moment you can express this creative potential, you can start changing the world.”
I would like to invite you to build creative environments for kids. Maybe you live in Carrollton, Georgia and would like to help me build a stage for the All Stars Ministry. Maybe you live in Ontario, Canada and would like to share some pictures to Pinterest of the creative things you have done. Or maybe you would like to send me some ideas for either of our next two series, Make Things Industries or Safari?
Here are some pictures from our previous stage environments:
