I'm absolutely on board with Andrea here. In my experience, the synonymizing of "creative" to "artsy," and thus confinement of "creativity" to aesthetically-driven enterprises, has meant that an entire toolset is removed from consideration when facing non-art questions or challenges. I believe every field can benefit from increased creative confidence, as it is the first step towards innovation.

I do, however, understand that -- particularly with younger kids -- art (aesthetic and tactile experiences) are likely the most effective means of training for creative thinking. Given this, it might make sense to limit this challenge to artistic ventures.
