To me, creativity refers to the formation of ideas that lead to the creation of items/beliefs that are unorthodox yet prove to be more useful than common items. In other words, it is to use ordinary materials to make EXTRAORDINARY items.
To me, creativity is very important as it enables us to invent creative things or ways that can help us do everyday jobs and things in a fun and better way.
To illustrate how imagination is found in creativity, take for an example art. In art, you have to be CREATIVE enough to IMAGINE about the thing you are about to draw.
Modern technology is available today because of the creativity and the skill to imagine that the inventor possesses . Computers would not be available today if not for the inventor to imagine about a machine that could do the work for us, and that shows how much importance imagination holds.
For example on how creativity is important, we could use Isaac Newton as an example. Isaac Newton formulated his theory of gravity after seeing an apple fall from a tree. Creative sparks like this lead to the discovery of new ideas and concepts, as seen in the example.

Creativity is needed for our everyday life, and it dates back to as far or even further than when early humans used creativity to help them with life, for example the use of fire to cook food, and the usage of leather to make clothes.
