Watching Magic Boosts Creativity in Children
A Reason to Expose Kids to Fantasy
Researchers from Lancaster University have discovered that youngsters watching creative fantasy films improve their own imagination and creativity. The study involved 52 4-to-6-year-old children. The youngsters were split into two groups and shown two short segments of a popular fantasy movie. The findings showed that the group watching the magical scenes generally scored “significantly better” in creative activities than their peers in the other group that saw scenes without any magical content.
