Creativity consists of fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration.
Fluency is the ability to generate a large number of ideas – the more the ideas the better.
Flexibility is the ability to produce ideas from different categories and perspectives. Flexible thinking enables one to see the same thing in different ways.
Originality is the ability to produce ideas that are unique.
The Critical Thinking and Creative Thinking for Lilliputs series of activity books have been designed to develop and nurture these three areas of creativity in kids in a step-by-step approach. Critical thinking is the act of solving a problem. Reasoning skills, which go hand-in-hand with critical thinking, help in arriving at a solution/solutions to a problem. In simple terms, education teaches us the earth is a sphere. Critical thinking makes us question this belief using our logical reasoning skills. Creative thinking, which is almost the opposite of critical thinking, tries to create a new theory for the shape of the earth, for example.
Critical thinking and creative thinking skills are very important for kids because they help kids understand and evaluate life and challenges better and solve in “out-of-the-box” ways. This series is designed to trigger critical thinking and creative thinking abilities in tiny tots.
