Improving the child’s imagination will help him/her to be able to gather more knowledge and perception about the world around.
These activities are fun and also help you bond with your child better. The first way is to provide your child with some interesting topics that will be act as a stimulus for thought. There could be topics like “What will happen if the sun does not rise in the morning?” Such open ended questions will get your child to think and look for answers.
Then you can also tell your child that you like kangaroos. Gently ask them to find out more information about kangaroos. Ensure that you have supplied plenty of books and interactive games to your child. Exploration is one of the best ways to help your child get interested in activities and the surroundings.
You can take your child on long walks and minor treks. You can help him/her know more about the trees and the flowers and perhaps help him/her develop a hobby of collecting shells if you live close to the shore. Open the world for him/her to know more if your child exhibits interest.
Learn yourself and teach. There is no age for learning. Provide them with more information and always encourage them to explore. The more the opportunities that you make available, the more your child will learn.
Encourage them to find and pursue their hobbies. Never fail to express satisfaction and happiness whenever your child exhibits creativity. This could be in the form of an idea, something in writing or a drawing.
A positive response from you can boost your child and he/she can positively delve in the exploration of the idea like never before. On the other hand, if you do not acknowledge and appreciate your child’s efforts, then not only he/she might lose interest in the activity but also might develop inhibition for learning.
One way to boost creativity is not by asking your child to give accurate answers but allowing him/her to explore all possibilities.
