Ideas to Grow On: Be Responsible
Children need stimulus to grow their imagination. By providing fun and inspiring motivation, children can gain a better understanding of their own potential to be creative. The following activities nurture:
- critical thinking and problem solving skills
- art appreciation and performance skills

Read Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson (Harper
Collins Juvenile Books). Inspire your child to follow his own
colored crayon, just like Harold, by expressing his thoughts through
a personal journey of imagination. Wonderful, simple, fun!
