What's one creative product you would recommend to all moms?
Only one?! I think you can't go wrong with the basics - paint, paper, pencils, scissors and glue - so that kids can use their imagination. I have seen my kids have more fun with a few empty boxes and some sticky tape than with a fancy "craft kit".
How do you encourage your child to explore their creativity?
We have a table in our living area that is just for the kids. Under it is stored all the pens, paper, beads, crayons, glue and so on that they can use. There is also a box with random craft things - fabric, glitter, sequins, sticks, pipe cleaners, foam shapes and more. They know that they can pull out those things any time and create something. These days they use it for homework as well, but it is not uncommon to get up in the morning and find one of them folding paper planes or drawing something there.
