A to Z of children's work: creativity

When working with kids
You've got to be creative
With materials you've got to hand
And ideas you've formed

Nothing will work everytime
Everything can be refreshed
Children like surprises
They'll put you to the test

Make a kite today
Tomorrow read a story
Next week try a puppet
In a fortnight dig a den

Ask questions with no answers
Play games with many meanings
Make creations for purpose
Allow space to engage

Working with kids is
A challenge and a privilege
Keeping creative is
Why God invented the internet

We should be
the child like, free
from prejudice,
no accomplice.

Sorry! :-) Here the vacsy is corrected:


One should be
the child like, free
from prejudice,
no accomplice.
