thinking together at home
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.
