My daughter gives me a great deal of creative insight & inspiration.
Fostering Creativity, Imagination Play in Kids http://ow.ly/1855x
My daughter and I used to make music with found instruments. The walls, doors, pots, pans and utensils. A noisy house but fun. #creativity #music
Now her learning is more structured but we still make time for silly play (and unstructured time).
Creative ideas are often generated when one discards preconceived assumptions & attempts a new approach/method that might seem unthinkable
Children think the unthinkable.
Creativity by individuals and teams is a starting point for innovation; the 1st is a necessary but not sufficient condition for the 2nd.
A great deal of time and money is spent on inspiring creativity in business, design, or research teams.
Much of this time and money would be better spent sitting with your children and getting involved with their activities.
Learning from them and seeing the world through their eyes provides the greatest inspiration of all.
