Innovate. Children by definition are innovative, no? I mean, think about it.
A cardboard box becomes a car, a ticket counter, a puppet theater, a house. the list goes on and on. Do you not just love watching their imaginations take over. The new ideas they come up with, the fun they create.
Innovate + children = enchanting.
A tree is no longer a tree - it is Swiss Family Robinson and the grass can move from being an ocean to the plains of Africa. A few pieces of lumber leftover from a fence project, become the beginnings of not just any tree house, but the vehicle to many hours of fun imaginative play.
One afternoon, this was a tractor, and they are working with Almanzo and Royal - Farmer Boy style.
I also thought of how do I innovate. Knitting springs to mind. Maybe not as imaginative, but take some beautiful yarn and create something of beauty.
Cooking requires the ability to innovate. Take a few ingredients like flour, water, yeast and before you know it...you have an entirely new food - bread.
I am truly enjoying the writers prompts from Write Alm.
