Through creative play kids are learning valuable skills, grow emotionally and develop intellectually. Play is something that comes to children naturally. If you give them right ‘ingredients’ they will embrace creative play and dive into it with ease.
Examples of creative play include open-ended activities like building, modeling, dance and movement, art and crafts …
