      ================== 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 be—a 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
      individual—including 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
      space decors.

      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
      his own.

      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.
