Share your enthusiasm
Involve your children in whatever you adore, be it making jewellery, visiting battlefields, walking for charity, baking birdwatching, dancing or DIY. Within reason, kids can get involved in most adult pastimes, and they can really benefit from taking in detailed information at an early age.
Trace connection between your child and a historical figure. A surprising number of children can claim to be related to someone they might learn about in school, so it’s well worth delving into your family story. If you can’t find any direct connections, seek out more oblique ones, a great-grandfather who once met Churchill or Roosevelt, a distant cousin who was friends with Sultan of Zanzibar, a great-great-great grandmother who was sympathetic to the suffragette movement.
Allow your children to see and touch the things that are magical to you and your family: a lock of hair from a grandmother, an old fashioned fairy book, a tiny gold charm or old photos of your family. Tell storeys to bring these objects to life in their imagination.
I personally believe that creative mind comes from their early age. Let them imagine, create, draw, picture themselves to find out what they will be good at in the future.
