Wordless Wednesday...Chanel? Calvin Klein? Or Betsey Johnson!

 

Many of us had Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs, clay, and trucks that you actually had to push when we grew up.  Today’s children have electronic cars that can be remotely operated and devices that are almost always on. 

mini me and barbie dress



The other day my niece sent me these photos of what mini-me has been doing while everyone is staying at home.  She had taken ribbons she found and remade many of Barbie’s dresses.  

 

While I love today’s technology, it is a hope of mine that creativity and imagination will not be lost in our youth today. 



Let’s encourage our children to play and create. Find ways to play so that their imagination will be engaged. 



You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.  Maya Angelou

So true, always find it funny how kids get toys and end up playing with the boxes creating their own little worlds. Also love your quote

Kathy while the current generation has many advantages we did not have, they are at a problem solving, and creativity disadvantage.

I love the quote by May Angelou, Kathy.  And, I have been amazed at how so many folks have come up with creative solutions to things in recent days.

Hi Wayne Martin I think it\s hard for children now because their heads are buried in their gadgets. 

Hi Sham Reddy CRS I agree. It's important to encourage creativity in our children.

Lise Howe Barbie debuted when I was leaving the "doll" stage but I do remember building homes from the books off our shelves. 

Donald Urschalitz it may be why I love seeing children at play or creating something out of nothing.

Hi Michael Jacobs she is only 5 but sometimes behaves like she's a 15-year-old. 

Sharon Lee Since we are staying physically distant from them, I haven't been able to see if the dress has been changed again.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS I remember spending an afternoon in our bathroom when I was younger trying to make perfume. 

Kat Palmiotti I pretended my bike was a horse. Even had a rope on the front that I would tie up to something just like cowboys did.

HI Brian England a few games aren't bad but too much time on devices is not helping creativity. 

Joan Cox she has also taken up bird watching!

Nina Hollander my niece takes the devices from her children and limits their time on them. They still try to get away with some extra time but that's kids.

Will Hamm someone will be playing for them. 

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 that is so true. My friend's daughter would take out the pots and pans and play with them. 

You may be right George Souto it's all done for them.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  she announced today that she was going to be an artist. 

Myrl Jeffcoat I think it's because there have been fewer outside distractions.

Hi Kathy, I agree completely with you and Maya Angelou - our youngsters NEED creative play.  Stretching that imagination will help in so many ways.

Hi Kathy Streib - Your niece may end up being a designer.  You never know!

I echo your concerns.  When we watch our little one,  we give him materials to build things.  He does not get bored.

Hi Kathy:

That's very cute, and creative. Much better than sitting in front of computer games or the TV...using her imagination!

Angelou is right on target with that quote!  Love it!!

Kathy, what a pleasure to have a creative niece like that, she actually enjoys doing things with her hands! Yes, I do my best to encourage kids to paint, play an instrument and create in any way they like! I love the quote you selected!
