Fostering Imagination in Our Home

You know how you never really know what you have until it’s gone? That’s kind of how imagination was for me. I just assumed every child had a great imagination but it wasn’t until we brought our son home that I realized that wasn’t how it worked.

Imagination is incredibly important to me, not only for my children, but also for myself!

A good imagination keeps kids entertained and in adulthood it can result in so many great ideas, some of the best business innovators have had excellent imaginations.

Thankfully, after bringing my son home I realized that while some kids are born with a great imagination, it is also something that can be taught.

My son now has a vivid imagination and I’m often astounded how he went from a boy who didn’t know how to play with open ended toys to a boy who uses his imagination every day. It’s fun and encouraging to see.
