Dream Big !
I have done this with classes as young as 3, most toddlers have a hard time understanding what a dream is but if you think your child will “get” it , go for it!
- Gather your materials. All you need is a child, some hopes and dreams , a piece of paper and pencil.
- Have your child write , or dictate to you what they want to change in the world. Resist the temptation to correct or edit them, let them dream even if it’s not as altruistic as you hoped or something you know to be impossible. Dreams can be impossible and preschoolers are pretty self centered so just let them dream!
- Have them write out ways they can make their dream come true.
- When they are done seal it up and put it somewhere safe until next year, when you open it and write another, then seal them both up. Before you know it you will have years and years of dreams.
