Fun Ways to Inspire Your Kids’ Imagination (Without Electronics)

Imagination today is becoming rare – this is my personal opinion. We have so many electronics available to our kids today that they lose the skill and thought processes which lead to imagination. What can you do to help ignite a child’s imagination? Well, many things actually. Ask fun questions that will encourage your kids talk and think. Here are a few fun firsthand suggestions.

Ask your kiddo:

  1. If you had a magic wand, how would you use it? Or what would you do with it?
  2. If you could be any superhero, which one would you be? This one is always been fun for me, I truly love the answers.  
  3. If you could be the teacher for a day, what would your classroom be like?
  4. If you could change anything in our home, what would it be? I love this question because sometimes you get some really great knowledge of what your child is bothered by or what they really enjoy.
  5. Tell me what you love about yourself. Make them feel confident and assure them it is so great to love yourself.  Help them if needed by saying what you love about them.   

Homemade Comic Book
It’s fun to have kids create a picture book or comic book. This can be done with pictures they create. Have them put them in order and tell you about their fantastic book they created. You can help with putting the pages in a folder, or you can buy some binding tape at the store. Also, you can staple first and then add binding tape.  Whatever is best for you to put it together is totally cool. Hole puncher, string, ribbon, rings, it all works.

Have a book club for kids!
This club will be a bit different. The kids will make their own books and then tell the story with the pictures they created. If any kiddo would like to have words in their books, have them they ask for help from a parent that’s helping. I always have extra staplers, hole puncher, string/ribbon, binding tape, or some clear folders if that’s what they prefer. It’s so much fun and a great way for kids to use their imagination and their thought process.

Ok, I hope I gave you some fabulous ideas to ignite your kiddo’s imagination! 

Imagination is knowledge because knowledge is acquired through imagination, meditation, processed information, and research; which eventually translates into knowledge.
