Expressing Your Children’s Creativity

Children's Creativity

Acknowledging and promoting your children’s creativity is not only a great way to get him or her involved in the arts, but also a way to efficiently solve problems and accomplish goals. While your child might only see art as finished products, the skills they use in the process can be applied across all boards. Here are two ways your child can express him/herself while developing applicable skills.

Make a Band
The emphasis here is teamwork. Gather a group of kids from the neighborhood or school, and have them start a musical group. Ideally, they’d create their own instruments and sing original songs. The goal is to show them how to be flexible and be open with others’ ideas. Record their songs so they can listen to their music in the car or to play at a birthday party!

Plan an Art Show/Gallery
If your child is interested in art, have them plan their own art show. They can create a general theme for their body of work. Once they are done creating pieces, they can develop their planning and production skills by creating their own show. They can make invitations, determine how they would like to hang each art piece, curate their own work, etc.
