Today’s guest blogger is Dawn Chipman, a former FamilyFun staffer.


We love this. Just pop open the cardboard Creativity Can and inside is a mix of fun materials your child can make into …. anything! Kids can then share their creations in an online gallery. To get your free can, check the “Find a Store” section of the site.

And for more on creativity, watch for our October issue!
