It's just days until Valentine's Day and love is in the air, for imagination that is...
Because it is also 2 weeks until our next edition of the WOW Club box is out - and anyone who subscribes to our WOW Club, knows how much we love the imagination here at The Wonder Company!
So why do we #LOVEimagination so much? Here's our top reasons why!
1. Explore new worlds
Imagination allows us to explore new worlds, wether that be visiting countries around the world or creating your very own fantasy world. Learn about the traditions and cultures of the world from your very own home through creative mediums such as storytelling, crafts, food and more!
2. Become anyone you want to be!
Through creativity and imagination we can become anybody we want to be: an astronaut on an important mission to Mars, a cowboy training for a rodeo or a mermaid saving the dolphins.
3. Imagination is the key to innovation.
Imagination is responsible for so many of the things we take for granted in our lives. Things such as the Internet, Aeroplanes, Skyscrapers, Bridges, Tv&Film and so many others. After all "Everything real in this world was imagined first"
4. Using imagination is key to a child's development
When children use their imagination in play, they are developing crucial psychological and emotional capacities that help them understand the world in which they live and their relation to it - they are learning to solve problems, create new possibilities, even change the world.
5. Exploring the inner-self
Imaginative play also allows us to explore both the physical world and the inner self at the same time, helping us to recognise our own emotional responses to things, which is a very healthy process.
6. Opportunity for family time
Exploring imagination and creativity provides many opportunities for quality family time, why not work together to create a magnificent jetpack? Or create an exploding volcano!
