CREATIVITY LESSONS FROM CHILDREN

Creativity is a skill that many children have in abundance. In my experience, as I got older, my creativity waned. I would love to learn how children find solutions to problems and generate new ideas. Perhaps we can all become more creative by learning a few tips from kids? One of most valuable lessons you can learn from children is their innate yearning for creativity.

Young kids will often get into art, drawing, or music as an outlet for their creative expression. But why we outgrow our own creative hobby is a question worth asking ourselves. But how can creativity lessons from children help enhance your mental well-being?

 If you can learn anything from children, it’s to be creative. In a world where everyone’s trying to be creative (which is not the same as being creative), there is immense value in fostering creativity. The fast thinking, done-in-one-take nature of art has certainly made me appreciate the act of creation. Kids are often driven by a sense of curiosity. They want to learn, understand and explore their surroundings, develop skills, and create new things. This can assist parents in teaching them important life lessons which will help them going forward.

Childhood is a magical time filled with playful wonder and pure imagination. Children build forts, think up names for their stuffed animals, and create a new world out of nothing but sand, dirt and sticks. It’s wonderful to be young and experience the world in a way that only youngsters know how. It’s a common misconception that creativity is innate. It isn’t.

Studies show that you can learn to be more creative, just like you can learn to do anything else. Creativity is a force for imagining what could be, and the ability to communicate that vision in real time. Rather than being something reserved only for chefs, artists, or inventors, it can be a powerful force in everyday life. This article will explore tips on teaching yourself to be more creative.

We can learn a lot about creativity from children. Most children are highly creative, but as we grow older, we tend to lose that creativity.

It’s unfortunate, but true. Many adults are afraid to be creative because they want to fit in. They want to be like everyone else rather than think outside of the box and do something different.

But you need to think differently if you want to be successful. You need to be innovative and different than everyone else if you want to stand out from the crowd and make a name for yourself.

 

Some important creativity lessons you can learn from children:

You don’t need a ton of experience or any experience at all in order to be creative. Children just do what they want because they don’t know any better. They aren’t afraid of making mistakes or failing. They aren’t concerned about what other people think about them either. They just go for it and do something no one has ever done before.

Children have fun with everything they do and that is why they are so creative. They take risks and don’t worry about the outcome of their actions because they know if something doesn’t work out, there is always another day where they can try again and get it right next time.

When it comes to creativity, children are the masters. They are uninhibited and can see the world in a way that adults have long since forgotten. Here are some of the creativity lessons I learned from my young students:

 

  1. Embrace your inner child

You have to be able to play with your ideas. Imagine what they would look like if they were something else, or if they were bigger, or smaller, or different colors. Your initial idea may not be the best one, but you will only find out by playing with it and seeing where it leads.

 

  1. Look for inspiration in everything

The world is full of stories and inspiration for new ideas. Don’t wait for your muse to visit; go out and find something great to inspire you. In fact, make this a habit.

 

  1. Look carefully at the world around you

Look at things around you with fresh eyes; there is always more than meets the eye! For example, a piece of paper can become a puppet show or an origami sculpture. Don’t be afraid to give anything a try; you never know where it might lead!

 

  1. Take risks

Dare to try something new without worrying about how it will turn out, or whether other people will like it

 

Some of the creative children’s projects I found were really really simple and straightforward, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t impressive. The extent to which a simple project can be transformed by just a little bit of imagination is proof that even young children can be excellent at this creativity stuff. Surprise can be a huge source of creativity. It means you’re so mentally engaged with something that you don’t even give it a second thought. So next time you’re stuck on a project ask a child to teach you something new and see what happens.
