14 Sep Creativity in Children a Source of Inspiration at Friend 2 Friend Social Learning Society
In a research article conducted last year, it was found that young children between the ages of 7 to 12 outperformed adults when producing creative ideas for smartphones. The children had ideas that were more original, relevant, transformational and applicable.
We’re not surprised. At Friend 2 Friend Social Learning Society we are incredibly fortunate to continually witness this ourselves in our Integrated Play Groups® program at our Play Centres in Vancouver, BC Canada.
Current thinking would have you believe that the world we are living in is impairing creative development in children. However, at Friend 2 Friend we see the children acting out games or stories they’ve imagined, singing and dancing to their favourite songs, and dressing up as their favourite superheroes. Often we find ourselves inspired by the creativity we see in the children who participate in programs.
We’re proud to provide them the resources they need for creative expression while playing and making friends..
Do you agree that children have more creativity than adults? Would love to hear your thoughts.
