Creative play does more than we think in the development of a child to adulthood.  Sense Making and Mother Care and Protection has a weak to moderate correlation to the development of personality.   The strongest correlation ‘Sense Making Creative Play’ was to ‘Openness to Experience,’ Mother Protection to ‘Agreeableness’ and Mother Care to ‘Emotional Stability.’  Even with these research findings in my doctorate, as a Mum of two different kids I am always tuning into their passions.  My daughter will draw, sew and create to her hearts content at the age of 5 she came home with a cushion she just decided to sew herself, and at parents evening she asked me to tell the teacher she wants more time for arts (in German).  These are all pieces which we have personally found and the kids have loved.  There were moderate correlations found from Mother Care and a combination of Sensmaking with an R.475 (R 3 to 5 is considered as moderate) to Cognitive Ability ‘Negative Self Orientated Style’. Mother Protection with ‘Father Care’ and 'Gender’ also correlated with moderate strength to ‘Other Orientated Positive Style’ R.408. Sense Making ‘Creative Play,’ ‘Mother Care,’ ‘Virtual Play’ and ‘Gender’ correlated moderately to ‘Positive Self Orientated Style.’
