Creativity is perhaps one of the most useful and practical qualities for a person to have. Creativity is the foundation for problem solving, particularly abstract problem solving, which we use on a daily basis. We need creativity to adapt to new surroundings, people, and social situations as well. Finally, we need creativity in order to express ourselves and discover ourselves. It comes as no surprise that we acquire and cultivate these skills at a very young age. It's important for parents to facilitate and encourage creative play with their children, which can be done through toys, games, conversation, and simple daily tasks. We have created several guides for creative toys, each tailored to a different set of interests for easier shopping. If your child has expressed a particular creative interest, be sure to support and encourage it. However, it's important for you to introduce a variety of activities and skills, so be careful not to limit creative play to one category.
