Developing Creative Thinking in Children

Over the past 60 to 70 years and all the way back to Maria Montesorri, John Dewey and Fredrik Froebel you can find a vast amount of material devoted to the development of creative thinking in children in the classroom and after school.

This page has been created to share some resources that I have used, have in my own library, know of that will benefit you as a teacher or parent.

Developing Creative Thinking in Children

DeBono’s CoRT Material, created many years ago.  I used them with elementary school children and college art students with success.
