thinking together at home and school
Creativity resources for families
At Creative Together we are happy to provide an online resources section with some fun activities for you to do at home. We hope to expand our series of short videos to inspire thinking at home and having fun while at the same time practising creative and critical thinking.
Education is not only maths and English and remembering facts, but also problem-solving, creative thinking, understanding and synthesising knowledge. We hope to inspire you and your family to practise some of these skills together.
Visit our blog for some tips on how to talk to your child about some of life's big questions!
Make sure to subscribe to our newsletter or our YouTube channel to stay updated. We would also love to hear from you about your ideas, favourite books and what topics you like us to cover in our videos.
ThinkTanglers P4C Cards
Our cards were created for parents, guardians, and educators who want to take up interesting topics of a philosophical nature with their children, spend some quality time together and deepen their relationship. Our cards are great fun, encouraging exciting and important conversations about big ideas while awakening children's imagination, and practicing their ability to express themselves and to reason.
ThinkTanglers were published by Outside the Box Learning Resources in 2022 Ireland. They have also been published in 2023 by Academicon (Filozofuj) in Poland as Filosupełki.
