Is Creative Education = Summer Vacations

Creative education is the need of the hour, but is it right to confine the creative education for blooming individuals only to summer vacations.

Actually the fault is not of parents, teachers or anyone else, the problem is competition where 1/4th a marks less can ruin your career and lead you to the dark world of depression. This is the reason why parents today focus majorly on book education.
And then comes the long waited summer vacations with various ideas, summer camps around the corner. Activity classes in in the schools, various entertainment options at the nearest mall and all across the city. 

Don't you think this is the same time that was supposedly utilized earlier for our 10-15days outing, with our parents, siblings and grandparents away from the regular routine to enjoy the serenity and calmness either of our native place or some other holiday spots away from the regular city life.

We need to give vent to the creativity of our children in their everyday life because creativity is not a thing to be learnt in a period of 2 months and then forget once you enter the same rat race after this span.

Let them explore their own creative side within themselves so that they move on to become the individual of their choice.
