Join Lisa Loeb and @Crayola "Inside the Crayon Box" LIVE on Wednesday, March 7th #Inspire

Crayola 01

Creativity matters, and it's a skill that all children can learn.  In fact, when given a little bit of creativity time every day, kids tend to become better critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders.  With these skills, they are better prepared for life, and the professions of the 21st century.

Crayola wants every child to be creatively alive, so they´re inviting you “Inside the Crayon Box,” for special live chats with celebrities and trusted parenting experts.  The intent of the series is to help spark new ideas to expand your child's creative thinking.

If you have been looking for new ways to inspire your children creatively, and to help them express their ideas and build these skills, you´ll want to join in to learn and share!

Crayola Lisa LoebThe first “Inside the Crayon Box” live chat is TOMORROW!
On Wednesday, March 7 at 9 p.m. EST.

Join Crayola and musician, children's author and mom, Lisa Loeb for a 45-minute live streaming video chat on the Crayola Facebook Page. 

You may know Lisa for her number one hit “Stay (I Missed You)”.   She will share some personal stories, practical advice and ways that she brings a little creative play into every day for her daughter.

Crayola wants to hear from you, too!  Participants can ask Lisa questions during the interactive event.

Are you interested in the topics to be covered during the chat?  Here is an idea:

Why Does Creativity Matter?  Creativity is not about who is the best artist or who will become an architect. It´s a way of thinking.  One that encourages kids´ original ideas and develops their confidence.

Growing Up Creative.  Lisa will share stories about growing up in a home where creativity was encouraged.

Simple Tips. Easy Ideas.  Like most moms, Lisa juggles a lot. She´ll share simple, easy ways she sparks her daughter´s creativity as part of their daily routine.

Just in case you miss the Crayola “Inside the Crayon Box” event, you can check out the Crayola YouTube Channel where the session will be posted.

I hope you´ll be able to join Crayola for “Inside the Crayon Box” and please!  Spread the word to your Mom friends!
