In the same way that most of our time is governed by work, the child's should be governed by play. Yes, because we are honest, the role of children is to play, to invent, to let their imagination run wild and to create imaginary worlds.
Teaching how to make the most of the potential of each space and make the properties more attractive is our goal.
In the midst of the whirlwind of days and the clock running between breakfast and the bath before dinner, we lose track of the duties of the little ones. We worry too much about chores that matter little and little with the tools that our children need to grow healthily, with creativity, inspiration and joy!
Do you still remember when you were 5, 6, 10 years old? Do you remember what made you the happiest? What stories are still in your memory today?
Children grow up very quickly and one of these days, when you look back, they will probably be in college. You don't have much time to participate in the stories that your children or nephews will tell tomorrow.
Take the opportunity and help them to enter the imaginary worlds that may soon disappear.
Take one or two ideas out of here and surprise a child near you. You will see that in a few years she will still remember!
Simple, fast and inexpensive to perform. The door to the children's room should be the privileged access to the fantastic world of fantasy where anything is possible. Take a brush and some tools and create a special door to the land of dreams!
Do you remember the martyrdom that was tidying up the room? What if at the time you had the possibility to create characters with your clothes? Think of some brilliant ideas for the imps to learn to leave things in place and enjoy being tidied up.
What child does not love to take refuge in his little world? Make houses, hide in the closet or under the table? Having an exclusive, intimate and prohibited space for anyone over one meter is the dream of every child. Help your child to have a magical space or a secret passage! Take advantage of a closet to make a hiding place and put a glass in the keyhole or open a passage to an imaginary world.
It is much easier to make a dollhouse than you can imagine. Lean a bookcase against the wall and use each room for a room in the new dollhouse. Just create various environments and complete with some toy furniture and decoration.
Picasso stated that all children are artists. It awakens the artist's soul that exists in the youngest by creating a wall to give wings to the imagination. There are several ways to do this. You can paint the wall with “slate” and “magnetic” paint, mount a designer roll or simply glue scenery paper and allow the youngest to paint the walls.
Do you think that your children's energy is not depleted and that there is nothing to tire them out? They probably need your help to burn more calories. Do you remember when you were a child trying to climb the walls of the corridor? Or go up to the cabinets to jump out of an umbrella? The idea is to create a small gym at home or just some elements that serve to exercise the motor skills of the youngest. There are things as simple as mounting a climbing wall or a swing in the hall.
Who has never played at offices? To doctors, journalists, astronauts and teachers? All children like to imitate their parents and have a place where they can work! He creates a small office at home so that the younger ones get used to having their own job.
Do you want to create reading habits for your children? Then prepare the special corner of the stories. A comfortable corner, with light and quiet where alone or with family, books become the best stories. He sets up a kind of library and arranges books in an organized and accessible way. You can even add a small stage and scenery to bring books to life.
There are games that never change and spaces that have a lot of potential but are usually undervalued and overlooked. Have you thought about what can become the hallway at home? Bars on the ceiling for a family challenge, mirror games, basketball tables, an enigmatic walkway or a game floor on the floor are just a few ideas.
For children everything can come to life, everything becomes a character in history. Look at objects and furniture and try to figure out how to turn them into cartoons. You will see the surprised face of the little ones when they enter through the door of Terra dos Sonhos!
In fact, houses should all be fun and inspiring. Not only for children, but also for adults. Don't be afraid to take a risk.
Enjoy the celebration of Children's Day and let your imagination run wild. After all it's always time to play!
