Keeping kids creative

Keeping kids creative

A few years ago, it was all the rage for children to have their own computers and TVs, often even in their own rooms. Today, however, parents are wising up about technology. The main technological devices of the home are now in public areas where parents can be aware of what games and websites their kids are accessing.

Provide opportunities for kids to use their imagination

As part of this new trend, parents and experts are concerned that "children might forget how to play, creating their own games and stories." Thus, some interior designers are now making sure that when they design an environment for kids, they make sure to provide plenty of opportunities for kids to learn, play, and imagine. For instance, Ashlyn Gibson, owner of the design company Olive Loves Alfie, made her home "colorful and vibrant . . . full of playful pieces such as a carousel horse, vintage dressing-up clothes, hula hoops, and Russian dolls."

Make other activities available

Other homeowners are choosing to invest in internet services that block inappropriate content and also to "limit wifi supply to certain rooms" (though this is only possible in larger homes). Making your home and backyard kid-friendly goes a long way towards encouraging kids to look up from their phones and computers and become interested in other things. Bright colors in the bedrooms, library shelves stocked with books, and outdoor jungle gyms are a couple ideas for parents who want a little less technological involvement in their families’ lives.
