Stimulate your child’s imagination

Give your children the space and time to be creative.

  • Help them think ‘out of the box’ to make school projects more creative and interesting
  • Don’t over-organise their lives
  • Encourage imagination
  • Restrict television – it limits development of imagination, but encourage reading, eg ‘FART time’ = ‘Family Altogether Reading Time’

Tips:

Spend time together after school

Take advantage of flexible work arrangements where possible to be with your children after school.

Tips:

Runaway toy

If you work away from home or travel a lot, try this idea: pretend that one of your child’s toys “ran away” to spend time with dad.
