In order for children to be happy and healthy, they also need to regularly exercise their creativity and imagination. They must be given the opportunity to use their imagination — be it through simple means or things.
The key, though, is to keep things fun and enjoyable not only for your child but for you as a parent as well.
We recently heard about a game called “the long way home.” In this game you challenge your child to come up with different ways to get home. You can do this exercise when you’re fetching your child from school or if you’re about to go home from a familiar place like the park or neighborhood grocery store. Ask your child for various routes to take or means of transport to get home.
Not only will this be a fun thing to do for you both, it can also really help your child think.
We also love our Makedo Cup Critters Critters. They are small and complete with parts to help your child make two animals per kit. There are three options available – chimp / rooster, cow / rabbit and penguin / hippo. Each kit comes with very easy to follow instructions. Your child will really have a great time “creating” different animals from these Makedo Cup Critters. When they are done with the animals, they can reuse the parts to make anything their imagination so desires.
