Nurturing and encouraging creativity is no longer something we do for our children. In fact, the complexity of problem-solving of today demands a shift from critical thinking to a good blend of critical and creative thinking, so that we could introduce more effective solutions.
Imagination is the door to possibilities. The first step is to take ourselves from the linear approach to life and embrace learning through play. I know that sounds very kiddish to many adults, but I encourage you to be more open-minded and take on the challenge!
We would like to introduce you to a Wooden Puzzle Game call Babylon. This activity can be played alone or with a team of people.
2 coloured dice
7 4-dice building blocks: blue, brown, green, orange, purple, yellow, red
2 3-dice building blocks: black, white
(refer to the picture on the right)
1. Roll the two coloured dice and remove the two coloured building blocks shown on the eyes of the dice (example: remove red & green)
2. Assemble the remaining 7 building blocks into a 3-by-3 PUZZLE CUBE.
If you are playing with a team of people. Players take turns to roll the dice and everyone will complete his/her puzzle cube independently. The winner either earns a point, a prize or a reward. Have FUN!
Creativity is contagious. Pass it on!
