Tap Into Your Creative Side This Year With These 10 Gadgets

If only we could go back to our elementary school days. Along with nap time and recess, we had scheduled parts of every day devoted to creativity, whether that meant sculpting butterflies from Play-Doh or drawing dragons with Crayons. Sadly, unless you're a full-time artist or writer, those days probably feel like a distant dream.

Even though getting older comes with more control over how you spend your time, the demands of work, everyday errands (laundry, grocery shopping, yada, yada, yada), and personal relationships leave little time to indulge your inner creative genius.

Luckily, just as our phones and gadgets have opened up new and easier methods of communicating, they're also offering up tools for cultivating your creativity. Ahead, 10 gadgets that will let you unleash your inner artist, if only for a few moments each day.
