What life skill does ‘Thinking out of the box’ instil in children?
Thinking out of the box means approaching problems in new and innovative ways. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Imagination is where creativity, ingenuity, and thinking outside the box begin for child development. In early childhood, critical thinking skills and creative problem-solving abilities are vital for children’s development. Trying new ways of doing things, and experimenting them help develop critical thinking in children and foster creative problem solving abilities. Furthermore, in this competitive world creative thinking is what will help differentiate an individual from others and provide him/her with an added advantage when they join the workforce in future.
