It’s Great to Create!
Creativity is the most dynamic and free form type of self-expression. Being creative is the best way for a developing young mind to understand and reflect upon feelings and experiences. The experiences children have during their early years of life can significantly enhance the development of their creativity and learning abilities.
The Creative Process
The creative process allows a child to gain cognitive skills, scientific method, dexterity and exertion, problem solving and the ability to identify symbols, patterns and shapes. The most important aspect of creativity is the process of self-expression. Creative experiences allow children express and understand their feelings by developing coping mechanisms. A child’s creative activity gives teachers and parents a way to learn more about what the child may be thinking or feeling. Creativity also promotes mental growth in children by providing opportunities for experimenting with new ideas, and new ways of thinking and problem-solving. Creative activities help acknowledge and celebrate a child’s unique personality and diversity as well as offer valuable opportunities to personalise teaching methods for each individual child.
