Creativity in the present society is essential for growth and reform. It is also beneficial for having creative students organize thought, imagine and discover new ideas from an early age. This study aimed to 1) investigate primary information related to learning management results, current situations, and school curriculum development needs, 2) design a Thai language curriculum to enhance creative thinking for primary school students, and 3) study the effects of the curriculum. The study was divided into three phases: primary information research, curriculum design, and implementation. The participants consisted of 30 students in grade 5 during the 2019 academic year. Phase 1 revealed that the majority of schools still had fair fourth-standard results, which related to the ability of analysis, synthesis, critical, creative, and considered thinking. There were approaches to solving the problem that involved analyzing the policy and the practice outcomes. The results of phase 2 revealed that the curriculum’s principles and goals were to assist students in improving their creative thinking in two dimensions: 1) knowledge and intelligence and 2) feeling, mind, and attitude. The results of phase 3 yielded that 1) primary school students had higher scores after learning to enhance creative thinking significantly at .05, 2) creative thinking of students who learned by using the curriculum was higher than creative thinking of students who learned through traditional curriculum significantly at .05. It can be stated that promoting creative thinking should be encouraged in many subject areas as early as possible.
