This period is like one big family formation

We learn each others movements

We learn how to give everyone his own space

And I was thinking that getting out of the routine could be an

opportunity for us as parents to encourage the creativity of our kids.

Professor Mithch Resnik talks about creating a fertile environment in

 which kids creativity can flourish by using the Creative Learning Spiral,

a process that is made out of this 10 components:

Imagine:

  .Show examples to spark ideas

.Encourage messing around
                
:Create

 .Provide a wide variety of materials

.Embrace all types of making

:Play

.Emphasize process, not product

.Extend time for projects

:Share

 Play the role of matchmaker -helping children find others to work with

.Get involved as a collaborator

:Reflect

.Ask (authentic) questions

.Share your own reflections

 

.We now begin to apply the method at home and we already feel a difference
