Creative learning at its best!

Kids learn more when they don't even realise they're learning, which is why 80% of a child's education happens after school (and why they'll only try to eat the Play Dough once). Creative thinking exercises can open up brand new worlds, so check out this bunch of inspirational doorways.

Creative Learning Resources for Kids

Recent studies by smart cookies show that 80% of learning happens outside of the classroom, so if your kids are running round with Superman capes on, pressing their magnetic fridge letters into Play Dough, or rolling round in the mud convinced they're as much K9 as the family labrador, it's important. Right? This is how they learn!

Creative thinking exercises can come in many guises, and it's our hope that you'll get heaps of ideas from this section. And as well as some seriously cool ways of harnessing a child's imagination, we've got articles from parents and teachers on education in and out of the school system, so you can stay in-the-know.

They won't want to act like your dog forever - might as well make the most of it.
