Children-ignited Creativity

As we celebrate CreativeKids’ 25th anniversary, we have found so much hidden treasure among our youngsters. We thought we were teachers but found that children are masters of imagination that ignites the creative fire within us. Creativity is a gift to all of us, not just for an elite few. Let us collaborate to build a creative community in which children can develop creativity as a life-long competency.
