Enhancing Creativity in Children

When it comes to innate abilities, everyone has it embedded within them. Every star today has had that talent born with them and it is how such talents are being nurtured and promoted at much earlier stage – that will determine the success of such persons.

Recognizing and further developing creativity within every child is the key to harnessing the potentials that every individual can display both at the early phases of growth and in the later phase of life. It’s an entire process, a lifetime sequence!

Adults and parents can help their children develop their inborn creativity, and help the child to freely embrace and communicate such gift(s). A child who is gifted at mixing colours or one who is cleverly creative at putting strokes together to form shapes, should be nurtured and encouraged to keep at it and become the best that they can be.

To help children at their early stages, they could be preempted from spending so much time spent on TV and rather be involved with organized creative activities that will support them in claiming their imaginations.

Guardians and parents should endeavor to provide an environment where their kids’ creativity acts can be easily and better expressed.

Kids Creativity involves putting things together in novel ways, observing the world, or a given problem/issue, with better constructive eye-view. While certain folks are born with talent in certain areas, an artist’s eye, for example, or perfect pitch, or a writer’s collective ways with words – can make a lot of difference in making the world a much colourful & better place.

Every child requires access to creativity so as to grow and be able to solve the problems of daily life. In essence, every one of us needs creative outlets to be able to live fully.

Helping a Child Develop His Creativity

  1. Let them get their hands dirty.

Please minimize the ‘neatness rules’ and let them experiment and think outside the box. By research, children who live in environments with a focus on too much neatness – tend to be less creative; so let them take Chances and get Messy creatively!

  1. Focus the kids on creative playing and processes, and not just productivity alone.

It shouldn’t only be about how many pictures a child can produce, but about how engaged they are in the process. If you affirm on how creative a child works on a picture for instance, they will feel acknowledged and strive for more!

  1. 3. Make creative art play easy for children.

If your kid learns and is able to initiate certain art activities without support from others certain times, he or she will be more likely to create art projects whenever the ‘moment’ moves him.

  1. You should also encourage children to ‘create’ together.

While we generally think of creativity as a distinct pursuit, most times – the most rewarding creative experiences come from folks sticking & working together. So it doesn’t matter if the kids are building with blocks or writing a story, it’s surely worth supporting them to work and function thru the challenges inherent in creating with other persons, as this creates an experience that can be outstandingly transformative.
