Taking risks goes hand in glove with creative thinking. Taking a project from thought to reality requires careful planning. Even then, unexpected glitches occur. Emotional self-regulation is the key to carrying on with creative thinking toys – stepping back, assessing, and coming up with a solution. This process enhances problem solving skills and builds competence, confidence, and self esteem. When engaged in a group effort, evaluating and revising the plan builds communication, collaboration, and social skills.
