How they integrate these various experiences will influence their growth and development across many areas, including creativity. In this way, creativity is ageless and timeless. Possibly more important, creativity can be acquired and fostered.Playing creatively with babies, even newborns fosters many aspects of development.Creative child care promotes many primary physical skills. It is the way that babies learn about their world, thereby allowing them mental development and new ways of thinking, engaging, discovering, and problem-solving. This growth may come from actual toys such as blocks, rings, or cups, but it may also come from cushions with bright colours or textures to explore, even objects that make interesting sounds will ignite a child’s curiosity. Very young children learn about the world through their senses. Thus, to foster creativity and creative thinking right from the start.Stimulating multiple senses, as babies develop stamina, is a great way to foster imaginative thinking.  Toddlers are ready for more than you think when it comes to creative opportunities. So allow your child an expressive outlet for their thoughts, feelings, wishes, and imaginings.Regardless of your child’s age, creativity is a process, as opposed to a product.
