How to encourage creativity in toddler

Do it like TheHoneybunch…..

1. Allow your little toddler to extend the function of things. The possibility of creating a multi-purpose concept of his belonging and other thing creates a little inventor.

2. Observe what your little toddler is up to without any intervention. Being sneaky actually meaning your little toddler has been thinking on how to solve his problem. Don’t underestimate the lack of physical attributes doesn’t mean that your little toddler is incapable to be creative.

Mama : Some things I found so far are cookies crumbs, lego pieces, tiny cars, alphabets magnets and cereals ‘hidden’ nicely at the edge of my files and folders.The above picture is an evidence.
3. Expose to lots and lots of toys that involves assembling and build like LEGO. The percentage of masterpiece is endless.

4. Practice their fine-motor skills a lot. Encourage kneading, rolling, twisting, pinching, punching, grasping, pulling, poking, princing and even balancing.The best way through clay play.

5. Mess is good. Colours is fun.Science concept basics.

Finally, bring your little toddler to different surrounding and the best place is get your little toddler close to nature. Just let your little toddler explore our Mother Earth as much he or she wanted!

  2. i always believe that the stuff yg boleh encourage kids to be creative is to do stuff yg buat parents geleng kepala or rasa menyirap darah.miya suka:1)terbalikkan toy box & she will sit inside while singing "row your boat". she also do it to my biggest stew pot (mama buat kamu jd lauk kang). 2)draw on the fridge door3)stuff toys & herself under the table utk main "fort"and many more… mama hangin, but rasa bangga coz dia creative on what to play…

  9. Haha! I love this! Most times I do give my kids free reign to do whatever they want with their toys – I try not to tell them "no, its this way"…just let them figure it out themselves. Sometimes they surprise me by finding an even more fun way to play with their toys!I really have to echo your sentiments about LEGO and play-doh. They are a must-have in this house. I'm going to start making my own clay now, though…Banyak sgt kali dah beli yg baru.Btw, I still have not dared to let them play with paint :p But looking at the pics of your hero, memang mcm best la!-Adriana
