Imagination Definition: the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.
Kids imagination is the most powerful tool that we, the human family, have ever had. Without imagination, could Galileo have looked through a telescope at the stars for the first time? Could Einstein have dreamed up his special theory of relativity? In fact, if you really think about it, nothing would happen without imagination. Humankind wouldn’t have gone to the moon, the stories of old wouldn’t have been told and the music that brings us all joy would stay silent.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution’’ – Albert Einstein
Imagine if you dare, a world without imagination. It is the key to a dream, the key to a plan and the key to making anything happen at all.
Do you know who has the best imagination?
That’s right, children. If you can spark your child’s imagination at a young age you can ignite a fire inside them, the fire of creation. Just as flames in a fire grow by the more fuel that feeds them, your kids imagination is growing with all the experiences, stories and games that your children play. You have the power to shape the future of our world through your child’s development.
‘She’s a dreamer’ or ‘He’s a dreamer.’ You hear people say this frequently, as if it’s a bad thing. It isn’t.
Encourage dreaming, encourage imagination and encourage interaction. We need the world to change, we need life to be better for our children, the children of our human family. And the only thing that will make that happen is to nurture our kids imagination.
We are all different people, but our imagination makes us special.
