Creativity is about taking risks & making connections & is strongly linked to play. Creativity emerges as children become absorbed in action & explorations of their own ideas, expressing them through movement. Making & transforming things using media & materials such as crayons, paints, scissors, words, sounds, movement, props & make believe. Creativity involves children initiating their own learning, making choices & decisions. Children’s responses to what they see, hear & experience through their senses are individual & the way they represent their experiences is unique & valuable. Being creative enables babies & children to explore many processes, media & materials & to make new things emerge as a result.
