Can creativity be learned? Yes, says Danish creativity expert Dorte Nielsen. Designed especially for children, the Little Creative Thinker's Exercise Book is a spin-off of the Creative Thinker's Exercise Book. It's based on the ideas presented in The Secret of the Highly Creative Thinker also by Nielsen. She theorizes that at the core of creative thinking is the ability to see or make connections. And that you can improve this ability by training it. Her book features 40 practical exercises designed to strengthen children's connection making skills. Kids can complete them on their own. Just add pencil or pen. Begin by looking carefully at the page. Follow the kid-friendly (diagram or text) instructions. Complete the exercise by drawing your answers in the space provided. A clear example is given. The activities, challenges and exercises may be done in about 10 - 30 mins each. It's a wonderful way to nurture creative thinking in children. They'll just think it's fun. I had to try the exercises. Though it's intended for kids - I loved it. I completed the 3 exercises shown below. Whose creativity would you like to encourage?
