Ideas to spark the imagination…

img_0698The Anti-boredom Campaign will create novel resources and share ideas to inspire adults feeling bored to get curious with ways to keep the mind active about other things…

Simple themes can get everyone started…

Doodling – everyone can doodle!  Just put pen on paper and see what happens…  Let yourself be surprised. We’ve been creating giant doodles comparing and looking at each other’s doodles.  They’re a great talking point and fun to do together or by yourself.

Origami – it can take a bit of learning but is so much fun to bring yourself and others a new experience and the challenge of changing a flat piece of paper into a 3D shape.  There are videos on youtube to learn how to make all sorts.  An excellent adult activity allowing focus, learning, emergence and delight.

Nature – we are part of an immense universe, and beauty can be found at every scale.  We’ve been using a bit of meteorite to spark conversation and wondering about space and how tiny we are…  Also images at the microscopic scale be surprisingly beautiful.  Even viruses are beautiful!   Also celebrate our changing seasons – from seeds to flowers, and printing from autumn leaves.

Nature connects us with being outside, with the beauty in everything.
