Abstract: This thesis was undertaken essentially to provide in convenient form a guide-book of creative activities for parents and teachers to use with young children. It was recognized that much material which could be used for creative activities was scattered and diffused, and therefore not attainable by many. There are a multitude of definitions and terms used to describe creativity and creative thinking. Descriptive words such as novel, rediscovery, useful, satisfying, sensing of gaps in knowledge, and the like are used as writers define this mode of expression and thought. As plans are made for young children certain techniques are suggested which may allow for the encouragement and development of creativity. Among these suggested techniques are the recognition of the uniqueness of each individual child and the importance of a responsive environment.
