Imagination ...is more important than knowledge.
- Albert Einstein
I found some wonderful paper and sticky embellishments from Basic Grey (one of my favorite decorative paper companies) and I knew it had a "Project for Cole" written all over it. One of the embellishments had the quote, written above, by Albert Einstein on it - a perfect place to begin!
I made a little 8 page book for Cole and he fell in LOVE with it. "He placed his claim immediately - it is his book." I decided I'd better take a few pictures before he "loves it to pieces." (though it has been holding out amazingly well so far.)
page 1 - Imagination - love this quote. Cole is ages 3 & 4 in this little book - I wanted to celebrate him at this very imaginative age.
Page 2 - Children love to see their name - so I dedicated one full page to "COLE"
pages 3-4 - playing is the foundation for imagination.
Page 5 - Imagination is simple - just stop and let your mind wander.
page 6 - A good imagination is always better with support from those you love.
page 7 - sliding down the tongue of a whale... great props are wonderful for assisting the imagination.
Page 8 - Cole's list - to remember the things he likes to do at age 3-4.
Take a minute to imagine today!
NOTE: If you like this mini-book and you live in the Richmond, Virginia area I'll be teaching a class including a similar project (paper will vary.) "READY TO CUT" November 14, 2009 at Memories Galore.
