Creativity has played a major role in my life. Since I was child, I’ve always been interested in creative pursuits such as art, writing, and music. Although my mother couldn’t afford expensive lessons for me, she managed to nurture my creative spirit by exposing me to many different experiences. She took me to museums, hung my drawings on the refrigerator, and encouraged me to expand my imagination by giving me plenty of free time to play and explore.
Because of my mother’s example, I do the same things to spark my children’s creativity. Whether through art, music, sports or literature, I strive to give them many opportunities to express themselves. As parents, it is important for us identify our kids’ talents and look for ways to channel their creativity into positive outlets.
The following 15 activities will help you to spark your child’s creativity. Talent is not important when attempting these activities. Having fun is all that counts.
