Creativity Defined

Creativity is the ability to make something original, to imagine things that don’t exist, and to come up with new ideas. Creativity is the ability to look at everyday items and events in new ways. Creativity can make common things special and special things more common!

Creativity is not to be confused with talent, skill, or intelligence. Creativity is not about doing something better than others, it is about thinking, exploring, discovering, and imagining. Creative thought is found in all aspects of a growing child’s life.

Creativity is marked by the ability or power to create-to bring into existence, to invest with a new form, to produce through imaginative skill, to make or bring into existence something new.
