While creative thinking is a soft skill, it’s no less important and is needed in a range of situations. It’s essential to problem solving and strategizing which is carried out by everyone in one way or another, regardless of whether you’re a software engineer or a beautician. This has received recognition and more emphasis in recent years with Art joining STEM to form STEAM. Whether we recognise it or not, we’re all creative in our own ways and it’s something that we can also work on. Here are a few methods that were recommended by a private school in Dublin.
Reduce Screen Time
Childhood is the time where imagination and creativity really develops. Devices take that away from children which is why you should try to limit their access where possible. Instead, why not carry out some of the activities below?
Build a Sculpture
Building something requires creativity and in lots of different ways. In planning and execution as well as problem solving. There are lots of things that you can make, from a model volcano to a 3D model of a famous monument with your recycling. It will definitely get them engaged and be something that they can have a lot of fun doing.
Art and Design
Art supplies are open ended, meaning that children can design whatever they wish and let their imagination run wild. It can help them with their imagination by providing an outlet to create and express their ideas.
Take Them on a Walk
Exploring the world around them teaches children more about it and inspires their creativity. When working hard, it’s what you need to reset your imagination and think of fresh new ideas.
