Humans are inherently creative. If we weren’t, we would still be living in caves and foraging for food. Those early humans, like us, employed creative tools – not only flint axes and paintings to depict their world and decorate their caves. They also used what we now understand to be key Creative Tools, like questioning, wondering what would happen if? Making connections, solving problems, doing things differently, reflecting, refining and learning how to do things better.
