Remember that sweet little image I created early in January? It was of a little boy sitting on his bed looking out his window and there was a dinosaur looking back.
Cool concept right?
The thing I love most about this is it shows the real imagination that children have. When they play, this is what they see. They form giant ideas and play them out. To us, its pretend but to them it’s super real and amazing.
Imagine if we had the ability to take what was in our kids minds when they are playing and print it out and see it for ourselves.
That would be incredible. You could get to know the way your child imagines, thinks and sees the world.
Fun story- That image I’m talking about is actually a creation from doing just that.
We sat down, talked about what was in the room, what it looked like, what kind of dinosaur would be in the window, what kind of pj’s he would be wearing and if it was day time or night time. So many little details all from the mind of a child.
I took those details and kept them on a little note next to me while I created a dreamy portrait of what was described to me. Basically putting what he sees into something tangible that we all can appreciate and his mom can hold close to her as he grows up and look back and remember those fun moments that he had as a kid.
When she showed him the photos when they were done, he looked up at her and said “This was yesterday right mommy?” because he really remembers this whole scene happening. Talk about the most adorable melt your heart moment.
So let me ask you this. Does your child have a crazy imagination? Do they always tell you about the adventures they go on? Do they love playing dress up and making up characters and people they are pretending to be?
If you answered yes to any one of these, I guarantee you have a little dreamer on your hands with an imagination that is exploding inside of their heads. Why not take the opportunity to see what their imagination really looks like. I promise it is an experience you won’t forget.
