Or is it

Ink, dye, pencils/crayons, money, glass, ...

I come in many colors and I am very thin

All come in multiple colors and cen be thin.
Liquids can be thin (depends on their viscosity)
Pencils and crayons are often thin enough to fit in the hand of a kid.
Coins or paper money are thin. Money often comes in multiple colors.
Glass panes or windows are thin and can be colored.

I am found in every country, even in your home

Pretty sure every country has these.

I am very important, you can be very creative with me

Liquids/dye/paint/ink/pencils/crayons can be used to write down things or add some color to things.
Coins or paper money are what you often use to buy things with. You can also use it in artistic ways.
Glass drinking flasses, windows, bottles, sunglasses. Important for storing stuff, preserving stuff or being able to see. Creativity with glass in lead or fancy bottles.

I can even help you learn.

Liquids/dye/paint/ink/pencils/crayons can be used to print books, write things down, etc Coins or paper money can be used to learn mathematics, economics and a little bit of history by showing the face of some monarch or other important historical characters.
Can't read with glasses, glass in lead history, observing animals behind glass.

BTW

Dit I mention that this question might be a little too broad?

My Guess:

A Flag

I come in many colors and I am very thin

Describes a flag

I am found in every country, even in your home

Every country has a flag, and people like to hang flags in their home

I am very important, you can be very creative with me

flags are a national symbol, many flags have different meaning

I can even help you learn.

many flags are made of components important to the history of the country and can be used to learn about the history of the country it represents

  • $\begingroup$ Probably nitpicky, but if this is the intended answer, that's pretty ignorant of a lot of countries and their culture. Both the second and last hint would not apply to my country and quite a few others I can think of. $\endgroup$ – DonFusili Jun 1 '18 at 13:33
