Encouraging problem-solving and creative thinking in children

The world loves people with solutions.

There are many things we can do as parents to encourage creative thinking in our children. This is one enjoyable way. And you can start early. We started our daughter on it when she was five years old. I think she has started our grandsons on it already. Give How else can we do this? or What else can we do? or Who else can help? etc. a try. Tell us how it works for you.

    Hey! Sridhar,

    I have started WOW! Thinkers in Bangalore, which also endeavors to teach children aged 7- 10 years, to think creatively, think of many different perspectives and many solutions.
    I also use fun and interactive activities to help children and its pure joy to see them come up with so many different answers :)

    These are rather interesting ideas that will keep the kids engaged and also provide them with further opportunities to think and perform. The Cambridge Junior School is one of the top playschools in Bangalore.
