Does your child enjoy imaginative play? I think all kids have great imagination, as long as we let them and encourage them. How to encourage imaginative play?
First, give kids free time. They need time to think of stories and activities on their own.
Second, provide background knowledge. Read books, watch movies, visit places, meet people, do different activities. Kids can’t imagine anything out of nothing. They need experience to fuel their imagination.
Third, accept chaos and be ready to step out of your comfort zone. When kids come up an idea out of ordinary, don’t show any hesitation, jump in, join them!
Now I have an extra fun opportunity for kids’ imaginative play. I am so excited to share that Fruit Shoot is running a Have a Ball Stunt Hunt competition. I promise it will bring out any child’s wildest imagination.
Take a look at this video. You can also click on the image below to access to the video. Your child will be able to do just that, if you submit a video to the competition.
If you submit a video of your child doing some activity with a ball and a Fruit Shoot juice bottle, you will have a chance to win a video makeover that puts your child in the center of the action – imagine your child acting like Harry Potter with the magic of Hollywood special effects!
Even if you don’t win, you will get a free bottle of Fruit Shoot for just entering the competition, and you will have fun with kids make movies. If you buy a 6-pack Fruit Shoot, you will receive a free Waboba ball – a ball bounces on water, and is $9 in value.
