Creativity is a critical concept for the successful implementation of educational programs. It is expected that teachers put forth both children's and their own creativity in all activities. In this respect, a teacher guide book was prepared for the purpose of guiding teachers. In this teacher guide book, there are annual and daily plans only to lead teachers the way. In this study, activities recommended in early childhood education program and teacher guide book were examined in terms of creativity. In the study, the qualitative research method, "document investigation" was used. As the examples of activities were examined, they were compared depending on the developmental areas adopted while the guide book was designed. It is found as a result of the study that activities towards daily life skills are more effective in developing creativity.
