This week on “two shoes tuesday” we were given the following two words to choose from Invitation and Imagine. I chose to go with the idea of “Imagine”
Something that seemingly seems in short supply, or at least it so appears, when you look at the toys sold to kids these days. Sure, you still see legos on the shelf but they often are as kits with pre-done pieces you simply piece together according to instructions to make the “item” in question. What happened to using ones imagination to make the item invsioned in your mind. What happenned to coloring outside the lines, or without lines at all? What’s happened to taking what you imagine in your mind and making it from scratch? Are we curbing the imaginings of our children’s mind with toys in the form of pre-made kits that only need the following of instructions to make what is seen on the box?
