“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” Albert Einstein
The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but Imagination…
Orange Moon and her friends have been busy creating fairy homes and building dens.
It seems children today, have very little time to play, to lose themselves in their imagination. Many children spend most of their day indoors. A day beginning with school then onto one structured activity to another, back home to play on the computer or watch television leaving very little time to play outdoors and use their imagination.
What better way to help reconnect our children with the natural world than building fairy houses and constructing dens – fueling their imaginations and letting creativity flow.
When a child builds a fairy house, the child is actively engaging the mind, body, spirit and all of the senses. Just like their creations, each child is unique. Building fairy houses allows the child to express themselves creatively. This simple natured-based art activity can simulate social, physical, intellectual, creative and spiritual learning and development.
