Early Childhood Education Blog by Hannah Severson

I am Hannah Severson, the writer of Creative PreK Minds blog. This blog is about sharing creative ideas to do with early childhood students at home or in the classroom. Creativity is something many of us enjoy in our lives, so why not start teaching creativity in the early years of learning.

There is much research that says creative play is an important part of your child’s growth and development. Creativity is something that can help children learn and develop new skills that they will use throughout their lifetime. Encouraging creativity and creative play in young children can help them throughout their development. I have put together resources from a variety of websites that encourage creativity and creative play. I hope you enjoy this blog and connect with me if you have any questions.

Creativity in Early Childhood Years

Providing a creative outlet for your child to get their hands dirty and make something beautiful is so very important. Keeping a box full of crayons, buttons, glue, paper, and other crafts is a great way to keep your kids engaged and exploring their creativity and the world around them. These creative activities are more than just busy-work, or something to make your kids happy – they are an important part of your child’s mental, physical, and social development and will help them be more prepared as they move forward into elementary school.
