Being on vacation and totally unplugged from the Internet got me thinking about how to stay creative on vacation. I decided to post these suggestions because you might not have arrived at these solutions yet, and I want you to have a wonderful summer where you do all the things you love.
1. Use your phone
Most of us bring our phone on vacation, and if you have a smartphone, you can use it to be creative in several ways.
- take pictures
- record video
- do photo manipulation using for example Pixlr
- record audio
2. Bring a kit
Depending on your favorite form of creativity, you can put together a travel kit.
- Pencils and a small sketchbook
- Pre-cut pieces of fabric plus needle, thread, and scissors
- A small set of watercolours, two brushes, a small box for water and a small pad of watercolour paper
3. Use available materials
You can use packaging or things from nature to create all kinds of fun things.
If you have kids, remember to involve them. It can make it even more fun, plus you keep them occupied and help them evolve their own creativity.
If you have any more suggestions for how to stay creative on vacation, please add them as a comment.
PS. If you have the time, and you want an extra dose of creativity, join the Color Outside the Lines workshop on Tuesday, July 28
