Two Shoes Tuesday: Imagine

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?

  1. Nice take on imagine. This is a questions that has haunted me for years and one I tried hard make sure my kids had plenty of time for when they were young. I think it is a bit harder nowadays for kids to have time to use that imagination, that skill, because I think it is one. Just wanted to welcome you to the A to Z Blogging Challenge this year! Hope you enjoy it. If you need any help/tips, the A to Z site is full of them so take advantage! I’ll “see” you in April!
