Creative like kids

Creativity arises when children get space to experiment. Learning by experimenting. It starts with an idea. The process is in motion and ideas are growing. Look at it from multiple perspectives. Add or remove things, ask questions, take a break or start again. Be curious!

Creative Like Kids strengthens the creative development of children, so they can become creative adults.

Sounds good, but what does it mean and what does it say about the initiator?

Travelling is my way of life

Creative like Kids is an initiative of Nicole de Beer. I describe myself as a creative woman who loves to travel. Travelling is my way of life. It makes me more open minded and creative. What’s standard in your country is not done 500km away. 

My playful character keeps my inner child alive. Okay! I don’t wipe snot with my sleeve. I will not skip through the streets or lie down on the floor of a grocery store to get what I want. Still, I recognize myself in their funny shamelessness.

Creative thinking

Children are creative by nature. For them, it’s easy to be process-oriented. As Pablo Picasso said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up.” Adults are more focused on the results. Results are important in our society and I understand that. However, it will be valuable for the same society to maintain process-oriented thinking (creative thinking). Especially in a world where people have high expectations and nothing seems to be obvious anymore. Well-developed creative thinking ability can support the child.

Meaningful 

First of all, I want to focus on parents, daycare centers, kindergartens, and primary schools. They can lay the foundation for further development. I want to be meaningful by sharing my knowledge and providing various services and products. 

Future plans

You can’t do all at the same time. At a later stage, I will create projects for older children. Eventually, I want that children can become creative adults.
