“Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean,
but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.”

The Bible

If you want creativity to flourish you have to be okay with the mess. Legos strewn about. Flour on the counter. Sawdust and shavings on the shop floor. Spilled paint. Handprints on the walls.

Embrace it. Get out the tools and the supplies. Make a big mess. Celebrate the process and the product–and then foster a team spirit in the cleanup.
