Part of our ongoing Teaching for Creativity work, these sets of Taster Cards provide examples of how to practice the Creative Habits of Mind through a range of quick, playful activities. They aim to provide a scaffold for teachers who want to develop the creativity of their students across the curriculum.
The Taster Cards work across all age groups and settings and can be easily adapted to suit any class. They can be used as ice breakers, starter activities, plenaries, class assembly prompts, ways to start and end the day, or as stand-alone 10–15-minute activities. Some have suggested topics but could still be used in other subjects, and all require minimal preparation time and few resources.
We have also signposted where activities are suitable for remote learning, or for working in large and outdoor spaces such as the hall or playground.
