The creativity of children

Have you ever noticed how creative children can be? Give them a set of characters and a setting. Their imagination runs wild.

You may get an epic space battle, wild animals in the city, or a cops and robbers story.

New Star Wars characters

Star Wars characters created by a child

The above drawing was created by one of my friend’s children. He loves Star Wars and knows that I do as well. So as a birthday present, he created three new characters.

It blew me away. He is only eight but has such an imagination.

This makes me wonder whatever happened to the creativity I had as a child.

I know I had a much more active imagination when I was younger. There were days of GI Joe battles, sticks becoming guns, or my backyard becoming a place of adventure.
