Is your child creative? If so, it’s a blessing you should never take for granted.  A creative child has a gift for life.

One of the greatest things that you can do for your child is to uncover and encourage creativity early on  because this is a gift that can add immeasurably to your child’s quality of life – not only now during his or her childhood – but right through into adulthood as well.

So how can you find out if your child has creative potential?

Once again, a little knowledge of handwriting analysis comes to our aid.

Take a look at your child’s handwriting and see if you can find some of the following signs of creativity:

 Signs of Creativity in handwriting

1. Look for a comfortable and free flow of the writing stroke that looks natural and easygoing. Creativity thrives in an atmosphere of freedom where there is a lack of restriction.

2. Take note of the type of pen your child likes to use. If she chooses to write with a thick point rather than a thin point it may indicate a tendency towards pasty writing.  Pastiness is a term used by handwriting analysts to describe a pen stroke that looks as if it were written by a felt-tipped pen. It shows a love of beauty and artistry and is a mark of creativity.

3. Check to see if there any letter formations that are different from the normal school model.  Because this would indicate a measure of original thinking.

4. If your child’s handwriting is large and round it would suggest that she is inclined to choose form before function which would involve a use of imagination.

5. Circular i-dots as well as writing that is slightly decorative could show that your child has an eye for design.

These are just a few of the signs of creativity.  Obviously there are more, but these should be a good indication.  So be sure to check your child’s handwriting. For more on creativity and intelligence check out:
