Create a Dream Wall in Your Child's Bedroom
If you have a collection of postcards from your travels and museum visits in a box, it's time to whip them out for this amazing purpose: to create a 'dream wall' in your child's bedroom. I came across this simple yet extremely thoughtful idea at pi ' lo where the writer explains:
"We have a dream wall in the boys bedroom. Every night before going to sleep we pull a postcard out of a felt gift bag and tape it up on the wall. The idea is to dream about the image, and if we all learn a little bit about art history along the way, even better."
I think this would be a wonderful bedtime ritual for parents and kids, and amongst couples as well. Sharing or reflecting on travels and experiences, enriching each other with new knowledge while promoting interconnectedness, creativity and dreams.
