Some research found that enhancing student creativity may offer benefits academically, developmentally, and emotionally. When we was child, teacher is the important role of our (as a student) creativity. They thought us about how to think creative in many ways. In kindergarten, we learned about how to solve problem in a simple game. Our brain trained how to solve problem from we were child. So, in elementary school until college, our brain can solve many problem from easy ones to difficult problem. As a teacher, they have big responsibility to teach us how to become creative and also smart way to solve problem. There are some activities that can enhance children creativity:

1. Word Games

Word games can encourage creative thinking because it allows children to make connections and relationships between different words. Some popular word games are Scrabbles and Bookworm.

2. Visual Thinking Games

This games employ the use of visual thinking because children encourage visualization and the use of imagination—two important aspects of thinking creatively. Show a picture and make the story about that. This games also teach people to look at something from all different angles and perspectives.

3. Drawing Games

This games can help children build on existing concepts, knowledge, and ideas, another key aspect of creativity. When we was child, our parents give us a paper with many dots. If we make line from those point then we will see one picture from those dots.

 “Encouraging creativity in students will not only serve them well while they are in school, it will help them develop skills that will serve them well as adults. Creativity is not just about being good at drawing or some other creative art form. As a teacher, you have an opportunity to help students develop something that will enhance all aspects of their life.” – Kelli Cooper
