When inventor and artist Ray Frigard of Mound published Funthink: 12 Tools for Creative Problem Solving and Art Think: Creativity Skills for 21st Century Careers back in 2007 and 2011 respectively, he had no idea how relevant the workbooks would still be a decade later.
With COVID-19 forcing major changes in the way we educate our young people, the series is getting a lot of attention. The books teach creative problem solving skills, which are so needed right now, in a hands-on way.
Funthink: 12 Tools for Creative Problem Solving uses engaging hands-on activities to guide the educator/student through the problem solving process using 12 proven creativity tools. Through research in creativity development and drawing on 40 years experience in design, invention and teaching, Funthink is a curriculum that will help children and adults experience the creative process first hand. The activities are appropriate for ages 8 through adult.
Arthink, Volume 2, offers a new set of challenge scenarios that apply essential creativity skills used by artists, inventors and designers in their development of works of art, inventions and new product concepts. Learn more about both books, which are available for purchase on Amazon, at www.crfrigard.com.

My intent was to celebrate Earth Day at the launch party for Bold Sea Stories by Marlin Bree at the Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake, Minnesota on April 22. Like everything else lately, however, the event had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bold Sea Stories tells 21 rousing true-life tales of notorious storms, shipwrecks and doomed crews fighting incredible challenges and undergoing transformative, inspirational beauty. Bree is the author of numerous nautical books including In the Teeth of the Northeaster, Wake of the Green Storm, Broken seas, and, with Gerry Spiess, wrote Alone Against the Atlantic.
Marlin is a former newsman with the Minneapolis Tribune and a past president of the Minnesota Press Club. If you are looking for a good read to fill the time while sheltering in place, consider picking up a copy today.

Easter 2020 will be a memorable one thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. It forced churches worldwide to put on virtual Easter Sunday services, and people had to connect with friends and family through telephone and social media rather than in person. Thanks to some creative thinking, however, there is one tradition that was able to carry on at The Waters of Wexford in Warrendale, Pennsylvania: a visit by The Easter Bunny.
Bright and early on Sunday morning April 12, the Easter Bunny hopped out of The Waters bus at the front entrance of the senior living community, then delivered baskets filled with goodies to all of the residents. Like the rest of The Waters’ staff, the bunny had on his personal protective equipment: a mask.
The basket delivery was followed by a special Easter dinner of honey baked ham, scalloped potatoes, green beans, a salad, roll and fruit pie.
A story about the visit aired on WPXI-TV, the NBC affiliate in Pittsburgh. The community newspaper, The Cranberry Eagle, is planning a story in this week's paper.
