Logic will take you from A to B. Imagination will take you anywhere – Albert Einstein.
Being imaginative, thinking out of box, showcasing creativity – these are some of the things that differentiate one person from the other in today’s world. And what better age than toddler-hood to nourish your child’s imaginative spirit! Because a child who is encouraged to be creative when young, will be more equipped to find creative solutions to problems in adulthood.
Stimulating your baby’s brain by doing activities that help create connections in his brain is the first step to raise an imaginative child. With repetition, these connections create networks that enable him to learn and evolve. His brain just needs some input that his brain can process, so the more you give in to him, the better his imaginative ability will be. It is also easier to nurture creativity in a small child as opposed to a bigger child. Because as it is, a smaller child is more imaginative as he/she does not know yet the differences between real and imaginary. If you do not believe us, watch your toddler for some time. See how he finds seemingly innovative solutions for simple problems.
