Whether you call it a dream, inspiration, or vision board, this tool can prove to be a real asset for bringing anything that one desires, into fruition. This concept may be even truer for your children, whose imaginations are vast, and the will to achieve is strong!
DREAM BIG LITTLE ONE!
IMAGINE, CREATE & INSPIRE!
This project is fantastic to do with the little ones, as they can practice both reading and writing skills.
Plus, it will serve as a creative past time, provide mental stimulation, and allow for imaginative fun. You will get to know your child a little better by spending quality one on one time with them. Not only will you be constructing this cool art project, but you can also discuss what it is they want for their future. You’ll learn what’s exciting, interesting, and enjoyable to them, figure out what they crave in the upcoming year, and plan ways to attain it!

*Set aside an area to lay out the tools, with ample space to work.
Maybe you could turn on some upbeat music so you can sing & dance while you design your masterpieces. Our favorite is Disney Tunes!
*Cut out images from magazines or computer printouts, or draw your own
*Glue, tape, or pin these pictures to the board
*Have them write words to describe what they want, and quotes to emphasize their goals. Encourage the use of bright, colorful ink to make it lively!
*Then, display their artwork somewhere where your child can see it, for daily inspiration.
Keep in mind there is no right or wrong way to do a vision board.
Let them be innovators, and allow them to write about what they desire for their future and talk, talk, talk about it!
