Three Activities to Target Flexible Thinking
Flexible thinking refers to the ability to think about something in a new way. This allows us to problem solve, understand other people's perspective, and maintain friendships.
But how do we target this in a fun, engaging way?Here are three activity ideas:
- Board Games- Change a rule or two of a commonly played game and play it a new way.
- Jokes- Write, read, and/or tell jokes. Jokes often use words in a silly way, which requires flexible thinking practice.
- Inventor- Pretend you are inventors. Use household objects or items in your therapy room and invent a new way to use it.
