Ignite That Creativity!
Are you ready to raise and teach curious, passionate, and creative children? I thought so! Let’s go…
Creativity is the freest form of self-expression. There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling for children than to be able to express themselves openly and without judgment. The ability to be creative, to create something from personal feelings and experiences, can reflect and nurture children’s emotional health. ~TheWholeChild
“Creativity means having the confidence that you will be able to find an answer, whatever the situation might be. While using creativity can be fun, relaxing, and profitable I think the bottom line is that being creative makes you a problem solver. If we think of creativity as problem solving, it’s easy to see why creativity in our kids is so important. Since it is impossible to know what situations or opportunities will be presented to our kids, we want them to be prepared to creatively handle anything that may come along.”
Creative expression provides many opportunities for expressing emotions and working through those emotions to gain relief and understanding of them.
Art, Music, History, and Play!
Today I’ll be sharing 5 easy ways to ignite kids’ creativity and get the creative juices flowing. You can incorporate these ideas into a lesson plan or use them when the kids are bored on a rainy afternoon.
Art and musical experiences should be a major part of any toddler’s daily activities, once they have grown enough to grasp objects, press buttons, tear paper and hold crayons and brushes. Kids love such activities and are always thrilled with art projects that let them be creative and have fun, and more importantly, spend quality time with the important adults in their lives.
How many renditions of each fairy tale have you seen, read, or heard about. Dozens? More? I love showing kids that they can take something simple – like the character of a princess, and rewrite her story, change it around, or even spin off of it and create something new.
