Creativity Counts. It’s not just our name, it’s our mission. Develop the creative skills needed to achieve lifelong success.
Welcome to the heart of the Creativity for Kids® Creativity Comeback. We believe in the importance of developing creativity in children. Why? Because creativity is the foundation for moving us forward. It helps us innovate. It helps us create. And most importantly, creativity can solve the world’s problems.
Our Creativity Comeback began in 2013 with the introduction of an open-ended craft activity, the Creativity Can®. But really, when you look at our history, our Creativity Comeback originated in 1976 when Creativity for Kids was the first company to produce and market craft activity products.
Small Creativity Cans, 1 (Really) BIG Creativity Can®, 6 New Themed Cans
Develop skills, exercise the brain, what’s not to love? Each small Creativity Can has the same craft components and no two creations are the same. How do we know this? We produced 80,000+ small Creativity Cans, gave them to kids and adults for FREE and just look at our gallery of photos.
We then developed the award-winning The BIG Creativity Can. It’s bigger than the original and filled with more materials such as air-dry clay!
And we didn’t stop there, we couldn’t. We were so inspired by the love from consumers and retailers that we developed 6 new Creativity Cans each concentrated on different themes: Art, Build, Critters, Motion, Music & Stories.
Recently we donated 100 Creativity Cans to the kids at Phoenix Children’s Hospital for a day of fun. All of the kids jumped right in and were immersed in the magic of making! View the video here. Special thanks to the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Jane W, Marsela G and the parents for helping make the Creativity […]Read Full Article

Creativity is as important in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status.
