Celebrating Irish Children’s Books | Online School and Family Book Festival. This year we are part of the Dublin Book Festival.

11am | Inspiring Wonder – How to Help Children Be Creative and Happy – Joanna Fortune, Juliette Saumande and Andrew Whitson

November 21, 2021 11:00 am
Cost: €5
Until 12:00 pm

At WonderFest we believe that creative children are happy children. Writing stories and poems, drawing, designing and making things, they all help to build a child’s confidence. Being creative gives children the opportunity to express themselves and a recent Arts Council of Ireland survey showed that arts participation boosts children’s confidence, socio-economic well-being and academic skills. All brilliant reasons to support children’s creativity! 

But how can parents, teachers and other people in children’s lives help and inspire children to be creative? And how can creativity help children reach their full potential? 

Elaina Ryan, Director of Children’s Books Ireland, talks to three people with years of expertise in the area of children’s well-being and creativity: Joanna Fortune , Juliette Saumande and Andrew Whitson
