6 Ways to Get Crafty this Creativity Month

This month is International Creativity Month. When we think of creativity, famous paintings or great novels might spring to mind. But there are lots of ways to be creative and with current restrictions in mind, we have put some ideas together for you:

Make a paper craft

For those who are new to crafts, a Paper Comic Diary could be a good place to start. It can help you visualise your week and can even help you set future goals as you reflect on your month week by week.

The British Museum added some great easy origami resources recently if you fancy creating some sea animals.

Bake (or no-bake) delicious food

We also created a No Bake Chocolate Slice recipe which you can find here.

Why not try a brand new recipe? BBC Good Food offers all sorts of mouth-watering meal ideas, including every day, seasonal and baking recipes.
