How do you spark your child’s imagination?

Posted by   + Show Post

Hallmark helps moms like you by offering fun interactive storybooks, recordable storybooks and more great products to families with young children. We gave moms a product from the following list and asked them to share their experiences.

Here is what some of our moms had to say:

Mena929 says:
This was the first recordable book we have owned, but I will tell you this won't be the last. You make reading to my kids even more fun:)
(Love You Forever Recordable Storybook)

Chillisarah says:
To see my children's face light up with surprise to hear both my husband and I reading the story to them just warmed my heart. 
(Love You Forever Recordable Storybook)

SarahSuzyQ says:
No matter what story it is, being able to hear the voice of people we love seems to be such a powerful thing.
(Under the Same Moon)

I like saving old magazines and let them cut the pictures out and glue them on a poster to make a really neat piece of art. They love seeing their art everywhere. :)

cute video

Quoting Mena929:

I first want to thank CafeMom and Hallmark for sending my family the recordable book I Will Love You Forever. I first want to say that we actually have this book and I used to cry when reading it to my oldest child who is 8. 

I took time this weekend to read this book to my younger children who are 4 and almost 2. My 4 year old loves the story, and she loves being able to read along with the voice that is pre-recorded. I then took the book and recorded my voice reading it. The look on my 4 yo face was just adorable. She couldn't believe she could hear me reading it and it said her name! (On the dedication page I dedicated the book to all 3 of my children) My almost 2 year old was also fascinated by the whole thing. They both just love books.

This was the first recordable book we have owned, but I will tell you this won't be the last. I love that I can record my voice reading the book :) Especially since my 4 year old spends every other week at her dad's house. Now she can take the book with her and hear my voice whenever she wants to!

Again, thank you so much CafeMom and Hallmark!!! You make reading to my kids even more fun:)

Here is a short video of my daughter (4) "reading" the story.

i gotta check it out

Quoting steffers96:

I recently joined a website called "abcmouse.com" and our son really loves it! It's a learning website and he learns his letters and numbers and it sparks his imagination with coloring and drawing and music and learning! I love it!  ;)

i never forget about the legos because i step on them a few times a week lol...but i agree legos are great for sparking imagination

Quoting Reina13:

How could I forget the legos?

He loves them. Not only are they great for fine motor skills but the things he comes up with when playing with them. I'll listen to him as he interacts with his lego creations and I have to admit, he does have a very active imagination.

Your kids will love it! It's funny because I've never seen 3 year old maneuver his way around a laptop before, so in addition to learning his math, colors, shapes, abc's, music, art and all the other stuff that abcmouse.com teaches him, he's also learning how to use the computer! Can't beat that for learning & skills. :)

Let me know what your kids think of it! ;)

One God fearing, God loving, happily married mommy!!
