Every child is wonderfully original. So let’s give them the power to colorfully express what they’re thinking as they discover, explore and dream.
Creativity is the ability to come up with original ideas, possibilities and alternatives used in everyday life. For kids, it’s a skill critical to school and life success. Here are a few tips to help bring creativity into your home.
Creativity is a way of thinking that encourages children’s original thoughts. Parents can do simple things to expand their child’s creative thinking. To get started, check out our guide to 52 ideas for 52 weeks.
