What's one creative product you would recommend to all moms?
Crayons & a sheet of blank paper! Really any type of drawing tool (pencils, markers, paints) and a wide open surface (paper, cardboard box, your driveway) -- the bigger, the better for creativity!
How do you encourage your child to explore their creativity?
I strongly believe in the process of an activity - it should be open-ended and have a variety of outcomes so that kids can be creative along the way. For example, when crafting with kids, I would begin by displaying the materials you could use for the craft. Let the kids choose how they will display and use those materials. I also encourage families to read with their children - it builds curiosity, imagination and creativity. And last, let kids experiment with items. They may take them apart, ask questions, use them in unconventional ways - that's all part of the creativity process.
