“A child can learn specific skills but if they don’t have the ability to secure a relationship with another individual, or have adaptability or have reciprocity with another person, then all the skills in the world won’t be of much help”
“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
Today while cleaning out cupboards I found a wonderful assortment of bits and pieces. I decided to gather these on the lounge room floor and sort them into 'Imagination and discovery play boxes'. The girls absolutely love them! So far we have :
Dolls and doll house furniture
Think I may do a prayer box for bedtime and one for the beach with shells, a jar of sand, some pictures/photos, a book about the beach, pencils, note pad and the questions the girls asked us about the beach.I don't want their valuable questions to disappear into thin air.
It's just another nice way for the children to play,imagine and wonder.
