In the current field of education, the development of innovation and creativity has become a central theme of global educational reform, especially in the early childhood education stage. In the face of rapidly changing social and economic demands, the development of creativity in children aged 3-6 years is particularly important. This study aims to explore how short-term project-based learning can effectively enhance children's creativity. Using a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods, this study designed and implemented a series of short-term project-based learning activities and assessed the creative abilities of the participants (i.e., children aged 3-6) before and after the activities. By comparing and analyzing the results of the assessment of the creative abilities of children in the experimental group and the control group before and after the activities, this study found that children in the experimental group showed a significant increase in creative thinking, problem solving ability and innovative behaviors. In addition, feedback from parents and teachers also indicated that children who participated in project-based learning showed higher levels of initiative and creativity in their daily learning and life. This finding not only provides new perspectives and methods for early childhood education, but also provides empirical support for the development of future education policies and the improvement of education practices. Through the implementation of project-based learning, children's innovative potential can be better stimulated and a solid foundation for their future learning and life can be laid.
