How often we get a quick idea, or see something that sparks a creative idea! Yet, often we can't think of something a little different to do when we're looking for an activity. My suggestion is your own "suggestion box" or "idea box". Whenever you get one of those inspirational prompts, write a quick note with the idea, or place the prompt (magazine article, gift tag for crafts, name of a song that would be perfect for a discussion) inside the box to look through when you have to find inspiration. You could keep a notebook, but it is easier just to drop the "item" in the box and it will be there waiting for you when you have the time. Keep collecting!
