The relationship between critical and creative thought can be misunderstood. But in fact, profound thinking requires both imagination and intellectual ideas. To produce excellence in thinking we need to engage our children in a curriculum that overlaps the logical and the imaginative sides of thinking.
Critical & Creative Thinking Activities' forty-six theme-based units will give your child lots of practice thinking in a variety of ways. From brainteasers and logic puzzles to mazes, Venn diagrams, and secret codes, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities has a wealth of mind-boggling activities that your child will enjoy.
Logical Thinking, Problem Solving...
Exercises include thinking fluency, originality, generalizing, patterning, and problem solving. Every lesson is based on grade-appropriate themes and is correlated to state standards. Published by a secular company, Critical & Creative Thinking Activities may include a unit or two that might not be appropriate for all families. Imagination and reason function best in tandem, and Critical & Creative Thinking Activities delivers just that.

This is definitely what I would consider "busy work." I'm hanging onto it for our next road trip. It's not something I'm interested in doing every week. I'd say it's good for when you need a kid to sit and be quiet and be occupied.
My children really enjoyed completing the various activities in this book. There were many pages that really made them think through their answers in a creative way.
This has tons of engaging activities for my daughter to think Critically.
Last year, we were doing Building Thinking Skills. There's nothing inherently wrong with that book, but this one is so much more fun! My daughter is having a much better time with this book and enjoys the exercises quite a bit.
Critical and Creative was a bit challenging in the beginning of the year. Some of the skills utilized were things she was planning to learn over that year, so we skipped around some and never did finish the whole book. I do think exercises that challenge thinking skills like this are important, so we will likely order the next step up in this, but it still had some room for improvement. Lots of the activities were pretty clever and fun for my daughter, though!
