11 Activities to Encourage Creativity

A child's education stretches far beyond a classroom; it extends into the environments where she lives and plays. These activities, designed for children ages 4 and up, are fun ways to develop your child's artistic learning and encourage her to think in a more challenging and creative manner.

Help your kid discover a talent for architectural design! Visit your favorite playground and evaluate what your child loves most about it. What equipment does he enjoy the most? Can he think of a new type of slide? What could make the playground more interesting? Use these visits and conversations to inspire him to design an original jungle gym or swing set. Start with graph paper and have him illustrate diagrams and plans with specific placement of each piece of equipment. Then create a visual representation using straws, cardboard, toilet paper, and paper towel rolls.
