The most important stages of a child’s brain development occur within the first three years of their life – developing speech and language skills, motor skills, and stoking a creative sense of imagination. Parents are astounded every day by what a child says or creates in their minds, unaware of much of a sponge they are at such an early age.
As a parent, you have a nearly endless amount of influence and inspiration over your child’s imagination and creativity. From the educational and entertainment television shows you allow them to view, to the learning skills and programs you use to teach them – parents can help determine the capacity of their child’s imagination and creative success.
There are a million different ways you can help your children’s creativity and imagination grow throughout their childhood – some abstract and some very concrete. They can be as simple and free as positive encouragement or as complex and expensive as a Montessori school. When children are wrapping their brains around new ideas and concepts, they are also highly influenced by their environment. What they see around them can be very inspirational.
Take a look at your children’s rooms, are the walls plain and white or are they fun and playful? Children’s murals of their favorite, timeless storybook characters can help inspire their imagination and encourage creativity – two very important skills for being a successful adult. Choose your child’s favorite Disney characters to dance across the walls – from classics such as Snow White, Jungle Book, Robin Hood, and Dumbo to the tire-touting four-wheelers from Cars or the junk-crunching Wall-E. Or maybe Calvin and Hobbes is more your children’s (or your) style. Paint a scene of the characters from Winnie the Pooh walking down the wall to your infant’s crib. Even if your children just want their favorite animals keeping them company, a children’s murals is an affordable option for creative influence. The sky is the limit and your children’s murals are only limited by the imagination.
