To be successful in school, children need to know the basics of reading, writing, math, and other subjects. But to be successful in like, we need to apply thinking skills and knowledge from the basic subjects. Problem-solving, troubleshooting, imagination, creativity, and persistence are all things we need to teach our students. To help our kids be successful, we need to make their imagination strong! These fun activities will help your child exercise their creativity.
