Be open and patient Don't push children to arrive at a solution. Be patient if your child is having difficulty in solving a riddle. Give him/her time to arrive at a solution and appreciate his/her effort. This will encourage children to come up with their own ideas. Remember the effort and thought process of finding solutions is more important than arriving at a solution.
Let your child help you in daily chores Engage your children in day to day activities. While cooking you can ask children which fruits or vegetables grow on trees or under ground. Discuss with them what is unique about the Leaning Tower of Pisa, how tall buildings are able to stand, what makes airplanes fly and so on. The idea is to engage them with their own thought process rather than forcing your ideas on them.
Surround kids with books Books are one of the best ways to ignite imagination in children. Fill your child's room with a variety of books from mythology, history and so on. Preferably get them children’s books with beautiful, colorful pictures as children get more attracted to images.
As we all know that both children and adults register images better in their mind than words, so you can have children watch some really great inspirational quotes or motivational videos. In fact, best is that you watch these meaningful videos with your children together. Such motivational videos are laden with life's wisdom along with captivating images that provide useful parenting tips. These motivational videos have proven to be a great help for parenting children and helps kids understand the importance of the power of thoughts and imagination. Besides, inspirational videos especially designed for children instill the important lessons of responsibility, honesty, perseverance, kindness, self-confidence and more in the young minds.
