Our paper presents the preliminary results of a study aimed at building a new creativity assessment tool, suitable also for younger children (3/4 years old), who do not master enough language and design to respond to the classical tests used to evaluate this competence. The first results are encouraging, both for the collaboration and interest of children for the test, and for correlations with a classical evaluation tool used too (a task of the Torrance’ TTCT). The discussion of results considers in particular the relationship between cognitive skills (representation) and individual response strategies.
