3 ways handwriting improve creativity in kids learning
1.    Writing enhances creativity and thought processes:
Writing helps get our creative juices flowing and supports with organizing thought processes. In one of his articles, renowned author Patrick McClean, stated that using pen and paper help avoid the distractions that result from digital platforms. When typing, individuals tend to focus on editing content as they develop it; which is counterproductive to the creative process. On the other hand, using pen and paper allows people to jot down their creative ideas, fully gather their thoughts, and edit later.​ 
2.    Learning: Making writing a regular habit has been shown to increase creativity and deepen thinking, keeping the brain sharp.

3.     Memory: Writing by hand is also shown to increase memory and retention. The act of putting pen to paper activates areas of the brain that help student increase their comprehension. It also involves more senses and motor neurons than when typing on a keyboard.
