There is a need for adults to step up in encouraging children’s creativity through incursions, excursions, and vacation care activities. The current situation is making it difficult for kids to do what they usually do and be where they want to be. In a manner of speaking, the status quo can be stifling to any expected to be active children.
A child is very easily a great creator. They employ their imaginations fully creating scenarios and dialogue to match. Almost all their waking hours are filled with magic and make believe. This method of creative play assists in their physical, emotional and intellectual development. To a child almost everything is new and worthy of their inspection.
Creating art and making things with what is available to them stimulates their mind and even their communication skills as they express themselves in ways that they are able to. An ability to express makes them more socially animated and nimble.
Vacation Care Australia provides a comprehensive range of activities encouraging children’s creativity through incursions, excursions that will delight and help their development. Like art. Making doodles, drawing faces or simply making temporary shapes while bathing entertains them. But these eventually dries out leaving no trace.
