Children are constantly looking for creative and clever ways to deal with the world around them and to decipher what they encounter. This is a behavior extremely necessary for their smooth, audible course. So give them the right stimuli!

 

 

All children are encouraged by their instincts to explore and discover new things, as long as you give them time to process them. Toys, such as cubes, dolls and paints, as well as many items you use at home daily, such as pots and clothes, can become "tools" in children's hands and open the gates to inventive candles for the wonderful endless world of thought.

Early childhood is one of the best times in a child's life to focus on creativity, as it is by nature the most creative period of children.

At this point your little one is open to new suggestions for creation as ever. So invite him to engage in painting, music and construction to creatively free his imagination.

  • Take out of your wardrobe old clothes and accessories and put them in a box for the child to access. Old t-shirts, dresses, handbags, scarves, gloves or hats are the perfect material for your little one's disguise.
  • Start experimenting to find out which hobby suits your child.
  • Give it plasticine and let the material give the imagination the shape it needs.
  • Give the puzzle its age appropriate.
  • Let it help you with simple homework.
  • Read it often, tell stories, and ask them to participate by discussing the story with you.
  • Transform the baby into a grocery store ... chef! You can take advantage of the variety of commercially available mini kitchenware and share the tedious work of arranging utensils.
  • Get your child in touch with the secrets of the dough. Wear your aprons, wash your hands together and let them imitate you by giving the dough different shapes and shapes. And if it gets dirty and causes a lot of disruption in the kitchen, well, it doesn't matter.

Provide the child with a safe environment that allows them to explore and play without restriction.

Take advantage of the simple, day-to-day difficulties you come across to find solutions together.
Give the child time to consider all the options before making a decision.
Highlight and analyze the course rather than the goal.
Set aside excesses! You don't have to force her to do more than she can, because you will inadvertently suppress the child's innate tendency to create.
