Want to significantly advance the creative skills of your students or pupils? These 200 creativity training exercises are motivating, energetic and seriously advance creative skills. The exercises are designed to use as teacher instructed activities in classes for about 5-15 minutes per day for 200 days.

The exercises are designed for deliberate practice of some of the most important fundamental skills for creativity including fluency, flexibility, persuasion, originality, elaboration, visualising and imagination, problem understanding, identification of creativity and creative self-understanding.

Creativity Ludo, Creativity Memory and Creativity Pictionary (free toolkit)

These board and card games are highly engaging, fun and seriously advance your creative skills. Simply playing the games will make you more creative. The games are designed to use in class or with friends and family. They have the same characteristics as normal board and card games, however, they are designed to advance creative skills. I invented this toolkit in 2017 and it was published by the Danish Foundation for Entrepreneurship in 2018.

  • One game is designed on a race-to-win platform, where each idea produced count as a move forward with the game piece on the board.
  • A second game is designed on a “mix and match” platform, where sets of new ideas based on combinations of existing products give points.
  • The final game is designed on a draw-and-guess platform, where each drawing is sure to become highly original because the start of the drawing is made by the opposing team.
