The Relationship between Playfulness and Creativity of Japanese Preschool Children.
Taylor, Satomi Izumi; Rogers, Cosby Steele
International Journal of Early Childhood, v33 n1 p43-49 2001
The relationship between playfulness and creativity was examined among preschoolers in Japan. Statistical data analysis indicated no relationship between playfulness and creativity. Because teachers described some non-playful children as playful because of an internal playfulness that manifested in one-on-one interaction, qualitative data analysis showed that such a relationship may exist. Cultural differences in assessment of creativity were considered. (JPB)
