What is creative play?

Creative Play is a process of play that results in the creation of an original artifact that a child has made. It begins with inspiration, and culminates in the sharing of a child’s creation in a meaningful public context. Creative Play engages a child’s creative faculties and helps to teach a number of 21st century skills. The Cardboard Challenge is a fun, playful and inspiring way to foster creativity in children through a simple process called Creative Play. Through this process, kids engage their imaginations and open up their minds to what’s possible – and then they turn their ideas into something real. Children learn to develop and test their own ideas, take chances, solve problems, get input from others and become better creative thinkers.
