I miss those tender years when my kids were little. The world was such a magical place to them. Now that they are teenagers they’ve replaced innocence and magical thinking with opinions and attitude. Ha Ha.
I love listening to little children talk. It’s fascinating to see how their minds work. It’s also fun to see the world from their perspective.
When my daughter was little she used to love to tell us about her dreams. We don’t know if they were real dreams or just stories she made up. She would always tell us about her dreams when we were in the car on long trips up to Grandpa’s house. We noticed that her dreams often involved things that we saw along the way. For example, if we passed a red barn she would talk about the red barn in her dream. If we saw a man walking a dog he would suddenly appear in her dream story too.
It wasn’t REALLY a dream she had. She would just make up stories based upon the things she saw around her. I guess it was her way to pass the time away while we were in the car. We miss her stories. They were always so elaborate and involved. Dare I even say that at times she had us on “pins and needles”, anxious to hear what happens next.
What if it was possible to bring a child’s story, one from their own imagination, to life?
I watched a cute video on Vimeo this evening called I’m 5. It’s also known as The Horse, The Doll & The Goat Whisperer. It’s a creative story from the imagination of an adorable five year old girl.
Check out the video. It’s only about four minutes long.
For a young girl she really has a vivid imagination. I had to chuckle at the sparkly boots.
This is a cute idea. I know it’s not possible for most people to re-create a child’s story into a video, but if you have the equipment and the means wouldn’t it be fun to do something like this with a story created by your child or grandchild? I think that would be a cool idea. Plus it would be interesting to look back upon it when your child is much older.
What did you think of the video? Would you like to see one of your child’s stories come alive?
