================== ARTICLE START ==================
If there's one thing that a child can fascinate you with, it's
what he can do with his imagination. A child's mind is like that
of a creative writer, it can bring him to all the places he
wants to be in, whether it's in Neverland or in outer space; it
allows him to become whoever he wants to bea superhero, pirate
or scientist; and it enables him to do whatever things he likes
to do: fly, stop time, or turn objects into gold.
But your kid's imagination is not wild all the time. As a
parent, it is up to you to always encourage him to let his
imagination soar. Here are some exciting ways that will help you
promote active imagination in your kid.
1. Incite your kid's imagination through play. A child's life
typically revolves around play because it is from this that he
acquires the basic skills he needs to flourish as an
individualincluding the use of imagination. Spark his
imagination by engaging him in imaginative pretend plays. Help
him become the superhero he wants to be by helping him put
together his superhero costume. Or support his desire to become
an astronaut by helping him decorate his bedroom with outer
2. Give him art projects that will encourage him to create
using his imagination. While drawing and painting are excellent
ways to incite his creative imagination, it is also a very good
idea to provide him with art activities in which he will have to
create artworks using recycled materials or those that found in
the house but are no longer needed. For example, invite him to
mold paper maché sculptures from old newspapers. Just be sure
that you assist him in during these activities because it is not
safe to leave your kid to use scissors and other art supplies on
3. Provide him with toys and play things that will enable his
imagination to fly high. Modern electronic toys that sing, dance
or talk may be fun and entertaining for your kid but they are
hardly instrumental in inciting your kid's creativity. It is
better to opt for building and constructible toys like wooden
train sets which your kid can use to build and create trains,
houses and communities using his imagination. He can also use
these creations as props for imaginative pretend plays. The
Maxim Wooden 145 Piece Train Set for example will provide
endless possibilities for imagination enriching activities.
4. Parental support and guidance are also key ingredients in
stirring your kid's lively imagination. If your kid talks to you
about his pirate adventures and the treasures he has captured,
don't frown on him or tell him that these make-believe stories
are nonsense. If you do that, you're inhibiting his active
imagination. Instead, listen to him and be interested in the
stories that are products of his imagination.
5. Related to the fourth tip in sparking your kid's imagination
is this is fifth and final tip which asks you to join your kid
in playtime. Be the princess in the tower that he will save from
the dragon or be his crime busting police partner. Playtimes are
nice and fun time to spend with your kid. It is a good bonding
activity that will not only allow you to get closer to your kid
but will also bring out the child in you.
Living in a fantasy world where his imagination soars is an
important aspect of being a child. Be supportive as a parent and
join your kid in the adventures and see where your imaginations
will take you.
