Fun Games to Boost Your Child's Creativity

encouraging creativity by encouraging children to act out a storyThere are several fun games to boost your child’s creativity and intelligence. As a parent, it is absolutely essential that you nurture the natural creativity cycle to ensure stimulation of the senses, and the exploration of the world around your child. Recent studies in the area of creative and intelligent play indicate that the “pretend” play that a child engages in may actually assist in the development of their emotional intelligence, intelligence quotient, and psychological stability. Many professionals in child development have referred to creative play for development as “Imagination Quotient”. Here, you will learn about the fun games that can be engaged in so that the creativity and the intelligence of the child are enhanced.
Drama Encourages Creativity
If you allow your child to engage in dramatic play, it actually contributes to the level of creativity that they have. Every child enjoys dressing up as someone else, and pretending that they are the character that they are dressed as. You should encourage your child to do this. You could read a book together, and then allow the child to choose a character that they like best. Once they have done this, encourage them to dress as this character. Once they do this, you should encourage them to act out the story with a different plot altogether. This can be entertaining, and exciting!
Board Game Revisions
All children have their favorite board games. Many children enjoy games like “Spongebob Life” and “Star Wars Monopoly”. If your child has a favorite board game, you could encourage them to create a new set of game playing rules. They may set a rule that everyone gets two turns, or that when a card is drawn, one extra may be drawn. This allows children to have control over their environment, and also allows them to see the effects that major rule changing has on a group of people. There are many ways that this can boost the child’s intelligence and creativity!
Game Creation
If you are seeking fun games to boost your child’s creativity and intelligence, why not go to the child directly? There are many everyday objects in the home that you can gather and provide to your child. Once you do this, you will want to encourage them to create a game that you and others in the home can experiment with. It is important to ensure that you tell them that the rules to the game must be written and that it should be organized. You are quite likely to be surprised at exactly what your child comes up with!
Writing Can Be Fun!
Many children experience difficulties when it comes to writing. If this occurs, there are some creative ways to overcome the challenge. First, you can encourage your child to write about things that they are heavily interested in. If you have more than one child, you can encourage them to work together in order to develop a story about something that they are interested in. Once the story is completed, you can allow them to act out the story and teach you about what the plot is. This not only boosts the creativity of the child, but it also boosts the creative spark that your child has!
Jedi Training
If you are a parent of a Star Wars fan, you know how much that they enjoy the movies! There are many different ways that you can approach educational topics using the basic Star Wars theme. Let them know that they are in Jedi Training as a “Padawan”. If they are learning math, for example, you can purchase them a toy light saber and then create a lesson that allows them to practice their light saber skills. You can ask them to move the light saber a certain number of times in order to enhance counting skills. If you are teaching the alphabet, you can have them take the toy and “draw” imaginary letters in the air with it. You will find that they will enjoy these games and develop important skills!
Every child is naturally curious. One of the ways that you can enhance their creativity and intelligence is to allow them to pretend that they are an investigator. You may teach Science and other subjects by using this particular method. You may allow them to go outdoors, locate different types of leaves, for example. Once they have gathered the leaves, they can go online to discover what the leave is, and other important information. They can then document their findings in a special investigation journal. You will find that this is beneficial when it comes to your child’s creativity and intelligence.
As you can see, there are many different fun games to boost your child’s creativity. Here, I have mentioned quite a few ideas that you may find work for you. However, there are many other games out there that can be used to enhance these skills in your child. All it takes is a little research, room for creativity, and the time to play the games. If you have all of this, you can easily create your own fun games to boost your child’s creativity!
