Small Children have Big Dreams
(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)
I’d been creating all these posts for this weekend, thinking about my hopes and dreams, my progress, and my change of attitude. I’ve got a post coming later about some of my husband’s goals. Then I realised I hadn’t thought to ask my daughter about her dreams! How could I forget?
Of course we had to make a fun way to record them… here’s some suns by Cheeky Boy and Little Miss (sorry this is another sunshine themed post, apparently I’m in a sunny mood today!):
Can you guess which one belongs to which child?!
Here they are having fun painting:
It was a very easy craft! They just painted their paper plates yellow. Then when that was dry they drew ‘faces’ on with black pen – though cheeky boy’s is just a scribble! Then Little Miss cut out her own rays and I cut some triangles for my son’s sun rays. They glued them on to the back (with a bit of help!), and it was done!
We could have stopped there, and just had some happy sunshines to decorate our house with, but I wanted to use the back to record their hopes and dreams.
Well, Little Miss told me her hopes and dreams anyway, Cheeky Boy is too young for that so I just wrote some of the things he LOVES right now:
Can you read my daughter’s dreams? They are:
To be a fairy
To go to the zoo
To be a ballerina
To go to the end of the rainbow
Ha! Some of these are more achievable than other’s I think, but I didn’t tell her that. I still want her to believe that anything is possible!
Ask someone else about their hopes and dreams, you might learn something about them
Add some messy paint or other medium to your next project
Record you hopes and dreams in an unexpected place
Have you asked anyone else about their hopes and dreams lately?
