How to Boost Your Child’s Creativity

  *This is a collaborative post*

Let your child be inquisitive, curious and creative with some ways you can boost their skills. Allowing your child to be open and keen to try new things or to build something with what’s presented in front of them can strengthen a lot of their skills and help their academic success.

This prep school in Hertfordshire has some key ways you can bring creativity into your child’s life.



Get them involved in art projects

Art is the most common way of encouraging children to become engaged with their creativity. When children are quite young they have the opportunity to have fun with paints, colouring pencils, crayons and more. A lot of shops offer crafting kits for children to experiment and explore what they enjoy and what they don’t necessarily want to pick up again. From clay making to papier-mâché, you can discover what makes your child feel their most creative through art.

Take them on day trips

Trips to the zoo, museum, a local heritage site or a kids activity centre are examples of places where your child can flourish in their surroundings. Children often bump into others they’ve not spoken to or met before, which can test their socialisation skills and how they can communicate with others. The great outdoors is a key way of letting children grow and understand how to be creative thanks to the world around them.

Use story-making board games

Board or card games with children, where they have to use the cards in front of them to build parts of a story, are great ways to excite your children in different ways. They’re using their critical thinking skills to come up with ways that a story can be made, and also leave an ending that the next child can pick up and follow with their own creative flair.
