Remember those first days back at school and how they can be filled with so many mixed feelings: excitement, apprehension, hesitation, joy, impatience to see friends or make new friends… For our little ones, it can be quite a lot to take in all at once!
We believe that imaginative play, imitation games and arts and crafts can be a great outlet to process these emotions and balance the busy school schedule with precious moments of fun and adventure!
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
― Albert Einstein
Imagine a classroom in Nature…Just as they got back from school, the girls picked up their backpack and arranged a few school posters around the space. No time to waste to set up a classroom that came right out of their imagination!
Here, they can run, jump, climb, talk, pretend to be a teacher or a student, role-play… They are free to act their own interpretation of what they may have experienced during a school day.
As a child grows into this modern world, more and more is demanded from them, sometimes leaving very little time and space for imaginative play.
However, play remains a vital part of their development and happiness. It brings back the spontaneity, the innocence, the joy of being in the moment and only pursuing what their heart tells them.
Let’s give them the opportunity to express their imagination and creativity through free play, imitation games or arts and crafts.
And this should not be reserved to children only!
Here at Numero 74, we have imagined the Made By You creative line to invite little ones and grown-ups alike to take the time to create, imagine and get in touch with who they really are.
We hope that you will be inspired!
