1. Engineering
2. Business Administration
3. Physics
4. Computer Science
5. Education

All of these subjects are very fun, creative and thought invoking. The true fun is the fact that these subjects are fields that will make it easier to find a job right out of under-grad. (Besides teaching, they also make up the higher paying jobs in the economy, if that is a factor in your decision)

Other great subjects include psychology, astronomy, political science and liberal arts. These however have much more limited opportunity for "right out the gate" work, but are fun undergrad majors if you are interested in attending grad school.

You really have to leave it up to your heart. It knows best and there are always sacrifices and "what could have been". In all honesty, there is no such thing as a perfect major for you, everyone has it's ups and downs. I recommend researching some of these topics and taking a personal aptitude test that can generate majors that might suit your.

Have you considered economics? I think it is fun as it helps to explain the world and what may or may not motivate consumes.

The problem is, studying that major might take you 4 years, but then you have to assume you have 40+ years of your career afterward.

I'd consider looking at this a little differently. Maybe, instead, you could think about what is a fun and creative *career and life* to you? Then, figure out the best way you can use your time in college to help get you there.

In undergrad, I majored in both music and engineering. Neither one is for everyone, but they work as examples of a "useless arts degree" and a "hard boring practical degree." The thing was, I had to work just as hard at both of them, and both were very fun sometimes and very frustrating other times.

After graduation, I realized that the life of a musician wasn't for me. Today, in my late 20s, my musician friends from college have to work very long hours, but their job is creative and they love their work. In comparison, I am an engineer; I don't have to work quite as hard to make a living, my job is also creative, and I also enjoy my work. They don't regret their decisions (I don't think) and I don't regret mine.

Approach any kind of work you do creatively. That will make it fun. Don't be tricked into a false view that you are deciding between fun and practicality. You can pick either and have a great life, but go in with your eyes wide open: choosing an arts or liberal arts degree is likely to mean more work and less money for 5 or 10 years after you graduate.

Advertising and/or Design. But I suppose it depends on what you define as fun and creative.
