Celebrate Creativity!


"A bird nest" from the imagination of a 2 yr. old

Kids think creatively. In one study, when given a test to measure creative aptitude, 98% of kindergarteners scored at a genius level. Pretty impressive. So let’s celebrate our kid’s creativity!

One way to celebrate is to praise them. Another is to encourage them. And when your little genius is making something, ask them to tell you about it!!

Go Further:

-Take photos of different things your kid creates (objects, sculptures, drawings, etc…) and imagines (get a shot of them pretending to do/ be things). Make a note of what they say it is (or if they’re imagining, what their story is). Then make a book out of the photos to celebrate their imagination! You can have them help make the book if you glue pics to paper and write the captions underneath, or you can make a cheap, soft cover book through Walgreens, Snapfish, etc…   P.S. Grandparents LOVE getting things like this for random “I Love You” gifts
