Creativity can be defined as the use of imagination or original ideas to create something.
When considering creativity, you may think of traditionally artistic and structured activities such as painting, drawing and colouring, but children can be engaged in creative thinking for so much of their day that we might not even recognise it!
A child may be a painter, a sculptor, an engineer, a makeup artist, an actor, a conflict negotiator and a writer all in the space of an afternoon!
- -Helps children communicate and share ideas
- -Builds the foundations for problem solving and dealing with change
- -Affects emotional intelligence
- -Can enhance mathematical and scientific understanding; sorting beads to create a bracelet is a great way to recognise patterns and practice skip counting.
Providing visually appealing, open-ended materials is a great way to encourage creativity and Kidstuff has you covered with our Make It Real range.
