In this creative nerdery TED talk, Simone Giertz shows off her pastime and new career of “making useless things.” However, as you will see, creativity is never useless. You laugh, you learn, you grow, you fail, and sometimes, you inspire an online movement of people making cool things.

Play is so important to creativity and doing your best work…
It has been proven that play stimulates your brain. It’s how children learn and how we should be thinking creatively as adults. Play is low risk, fun, incorporates failure and success, and most importantly, it promotes learning new things.
As an adult, it is not easy to try new thing, stretch our comfort zones, and fail, but that is exactly what play is for. So, my question to you today on this Memorial Day is, “When was the last time your remembered to play?”
