Imagination is something we are all born with. This is what I believe.
Whether it is fostered in childhood is an entirely different story.
Imaginative play doesn’t have to include a whole set-up of specially purchased toys. Kids don’t need to have the latest gadget or remote-controlled vehicle or computer-enhanced game to play imaginatively.
Sometimes, the simplest objects lying around the backyard can promote their imagination. That, and a little bit of boredom.
The resulting creativity is often, um, strange, but also completely unique. I mean, has anyone ever seen an exact duplicate of this?
