Annotation: In the article the possibility of establishing a connection between the creative and moral spheres of the person is discussed. The author analyzes the results of foreign and domestic researches devoted to the study of the relationship between creativity and morality. The concept of "moral capacities" is proposed, its definition is given and three aspects of its study are identified. The results of a study of the relationship between creativity and the cognitive aspect of moral capacities in children of primary school age are presented. The empirical study involved 130 people; age – 7-9 years; boys – 71 people and girls – 59 people. The following methods were used: Torrance Test of Creative Thinking – figural form (study of the creative sphere) and two methods that assess children's ideas about moral behavior (study of the moral sphere). The results obtained show that there is no connection between the indicators of creativity and moral capacities in children of 7-9 years old, which is explained, according to the author, by their age characteristics. When interpreting the results, the specificity of primary school age is considered, associated with a turning point in the child's life.
Keywords: moral development, moral capacities, creativity, connection between creativity and morality, primary school age
