The sky is not always blue, leaves are not always green, roses are not always red, the list goes on… We are brought up to think in a box, most of the things we are exposed to while growing up is meant to configure our understanding in a particular way. Once we grow up it becomes difficult to change our way of thinking because we get too used to our old ways.
We can encourage our children to think differently by given them a different perspective to seeing the world.
Peter H. Reynolds in ‘Sky Colour’ has beautifully illustrated how children can use colours to learn the vital skill of thinking outside the box.
Get your littles some paints and paper and let them paint the world and their imaginations away. It’s one of the ways to encourage thinking outside the box.
