Child Development and Family Relations
Seventeen high creative and sixteen low creative children (as assessed by the Wallach and Kogan (1965) verbal creativity tasks) were observed during free play in the nursery school in order to test the hypothesis that high and low creative children differ in their free play preferences. Continuously available free play activities were observed in the nursery school and each subject's participation in these activities was recorded. Each subject's play preferences were determined and an analyses of the relationship between creativity scores and play preferences failed to support the hypothesis that high and low creatives differ in play preferences. Sex and age differences on creativity scores and play preferences were investigated and the results were not statistically significant.
