Imagine Childhood: Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play
Imagine Childhood
Exploring the World Through Nature, Imagination, and Play
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 1590309707

For children, potential is limitless, curiosity is an electrical current, and every moment is open to the possibility of the unexpected. Day-to-day life is filled with adventure. Road blocks are invitations to try new routes. And the world is vast and expansive. This book is a celebration of childhood through the crafts and activities that invite wonder and play. The twenty-five projects and activities in this book are meant to speak to the way children engage with the world. These projects are not about what is produced in the end (although that part is fun too) but rather they are stepping-off points--activities that spark curiosity, an adventure, or an investigation. They're about the process of getting there. They're about the conversations that happen while making things together. They're about getting to know the world inch by inch. They're about exploring imaginary universes and running through real forests. They're about living in childhood . . . regardless of your actual age. They're about being a kid.
