Get Creative: how can you encourage your children to develop creativity?Cute child

To get creative with your child, encourage their interests and play styles.  Children make sense of the world by acting out familiar scenes around them.

Encourage such play, whatever your child’s play style or interest because it’s an important part of learning.

Let them explore the world around them while having fun.

Children explore with their senses. From 40-60 months your child begins to experiment with materials to create different textures and understands that different media can be combined to create new effects.

Try offering interesting materials to explore, such as sand, water, cornflour or crinkly paper.

Adding scented flavouring into paint or playdough will extend their sensory play. Also, try adding glitter or sand to paint will create different textures and affects.

Make sure you give lots of praise and reassurance because it encourages them to keep creating!
