How To Inspire Creativity To Draw & Write at Home

This is a sponsored post written in partnership with BIC.  As always, all opinions are of my own.

Next Monday will be the first day of school for the kids and they’re definitely excited (for now lol) to get the new school year started. We’ve got the backpacks, sneakers, and most of their supplies. It’s funny to see how each kid gets excited over different supplies. Dylan likes getting organized with folders and notebooks while Robert, who loves to doodle and draw (check him out in action here on Instagram), likes getting new pens, like the BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry gel pens. Dylan likes them too because he’s left handed and it makes handwriting for him a smoother process. Speaking of being left handed, did you know that International Left Handers Day is Sunday, August 13? With ink that dries up to 3x faster*, BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry gel pens are a lefty’s best friend! *vs BIC® Gel-ocity® Original, based on average dry times of blue, black and red.

In todays tech filled world I try to encourage my kids to put pen to paper  (scroll down to see some tips on how to inspire creativity to draw & write at home) and I’m grateful for BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry gel pens that dry up to 3x faster, allowing creativity to flow with less smearing and a smoother writing experience for everyone, including lefties! I still remember teaching Dylan how to write and learning that he was a lefty. The only way we could encourage him to keep trying and improving his penmanship was with products, just like BIC® Gel-ocity® Quick Dry gel pens that made the process not only fun, but more importantly smudge free, which is vital for left handers.

Five Ways To Encourage Creativity and Writing

  1. Have kids create a drawing and then frame them and gift to grandparents or even a favorite teacher.
  2. Include kids in writing to do list for the family and themselves.
  3. My son loves to get organize and planning ahead motivates him, so I have him regularly write out important dates on the calendar.
  4. Draw their favorite gaming characters (this is a favorite at our house).
  5. Allow kids to pick a new recipe to make and have them write out ingredients on paper.

  1. I am in love with colored ink pens. I keep hundreds at home and I was famous for how many I had at the office. Creativity abounds! I keep a paper planner, and that is the target of most of my creativity.
