Vision boards aren’t just for grownups! The positive gains that grownups get from making and then viewing their own vision board each day can be had by kids, too. In fact, kids can build life-long visualization habits by learning to make their own vision (purpose) boards at an early age. The earlier you start, the more fun they’ll have with the project.
Vision boards help kids express their hopes and dreams in pictures, especially at a time in their lives when sophisticated language skills are still being acquired. This is a great time to begin discussing their likes and dislikes with them, leading up to helping them find out what they are passionate about. “How do you know you don’t like it if you never tried it?” is a great question to ask.
Listen in as Kira and Bill Van Ittersum discuss this question and several others as they share their experience with “Vision Boarding with the Grandkids.”
