There are two dimensions of creative thinking: a creative “state of mind” and creative “thinking tactics”. The former means clarity of mind which makes people always ready for truth, while the latter points to an effective way of creative thinking. The formation of creative thinking requires a leisurely mindset. Leisure education could help people make the best use of their leisure, let leisure wield a positive influence on creativity cultivation, and eliminate the downside of the current education, thereby rendering people’s efforts to cultivate creative thinking more effectively. The goal of leisure education is to achieve a creative “state of mind” required for creative thinking, while the content and approaches adopted by leisure education could provide inspiration for creative “thinking tactics”. To vigorously expand leisure education will be necessary in this creative age, especially for the cultivation of creative talents.
