The best way to do so is engage him in what he likes best. For instance, if he likes to write poetry, then encourage him to write poems. Simple is that.
Give your child some free time so that he gets bored. Then offer him paper, scissors and crayons and see what happens.
Let him watch educational cartoons so he'll be motivated to draw. Buying a set of LEGO can help as well.
There are so many ways, but to sum it up...you have to expose your child to different cultures, customs, and traditions through various mediums such as music, film, artwork, and literature. Encourage free thought by asking your child questions about different ethical scenarios. ...this will help the child to get in touch with his/her conscious, and he or she will then learn to appreciate the various works being presented to him and how they (the works) have helped or enhanced our current lifestyle. Expose your child to the great inventors of the world and ask him which invention is the coolest. Allow your child to take part in creative learning activities whenever possible. Summer programs such as Vacation Bible School, Boys and Girls Club, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and several others are programs designed to introduce different cultures and creative activities to the youth. Take matters into your own hands and research creative art projects that you and your child can do together at home. Craft stores such as Micheals, Hobby Lobby, and the Party Store not only provide the supplies but also workshops that guide you through a variety of creative ventures. Most importantly remember to ask your child what he or she enjoys doing the most. This will let you know what area you need to focus on.
Give your child room to grow. Provide an environment for your child to move about within the setting of Nature. Television and the internet are not the enemy. By using technology wisely a stimulus for the encouragement of creativity is at your fingertips. Expose your children to people who are creative. Cause books to be available to your child, quality books. Encourage your child to write, to express herself or himself, in art, poetic ways, etc. I hope this helps some.
There are many ways. We, as parents, may use arts and crafts to inspire creativity in our children and something that is fun to do. We may encourage leaf hunting, insect hunting, arrow head hunting or fossils, We may take our kids to the library in summer and get them enrolled in many of the programs that are offered. Joining the scouts and other organizations, is also a way to encourage creativity. Sports participation and joining conservation groups that help clean up and preserve nature. Bird watching and identification and trips to the zoo and nature walks. Camping out and family oriented activities are also helpful. Fishing and even use a telescope on starry nights, are a part of the possible ways to encourage creativity and expand imaginations. a computer may help, even the younger kids. Our daughter was four years old when we bought her a child's computer to initiate her creativity. She is now one of the most imaginative and creative adults that I have ever known.
As a kid I always played with Leggos. They were a fun way to express myself by building new things, tearing them down, and starting again! There are soo many ways, but this is one that worked for me.
I would say just be creative with them! Do crafty projects together or play pretend. Kids are like little sponges, absorbing everything around them so surround them with creativity and they will soak it up.
