'Seven Thinkers' recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for an educational card game that teaches children to think like designers from an early age. Designers are masters of using their creativity and divergent thinking to solve the problems they encounter on a daily basis. This game helps children foster those same skills by providing fun challenges and the tools necessary to solve them.

'Khandu' is a card game that helps encourages children to solve problems through creative thinking. The game itself consists of four smart decks, each of which corresponds to a different stage in the 'Design Thinking Process.' The cards present different challenges and the tools necessary to solve each problem through creative thinking. The process of solving each issue is designed to stimulate creative thinking and help children think like designers.

Unlike traditional card games, Khandu helps children between the ages of six and 12 years old cultivate a creative mindset, divergent thinking and problem-solving skills.
