Providing opportunities for children’s creative expression is how children approach the world in order to learn about it and to learn about themselves. Creative expression is how children play, work, express how they are feeling, and share themselves with the world around them.
Here are some tips to foster creativity for kids:
• Free time for free (supervised) play
• Arts classes
• Attend arts events
• Limit TV time
• Story telling
• Play act children’s stories
• Make a creative corner with crayons, dress-up props, etc.
• Praise artistic expression
• Display artistic creations
• Attend their school plays
Young children may not know which form of artistic expression they would enjoy most. Many bookstores and arts and craft stores have pre-made art kits for children; beads and embellishments, paints, markers, foam projects, stickers, stamps, holiday crafts, cross-stitch and embroidery, beginners knitting and crochet projects, craft critters, and more.
