My friend Jess posted the following video on her blog the other day and I thought it was just wonderful.
The film is about a little boy who creates his own arcade out of cardboard boxes and how a filmmaker makes his dream come true.
I particularly love this story because it is about a child using his imagination to create something. In my opinion, that’s what childhood is about. Too often we have kids on video games, computers, leapsters, gameboys, or ipads to keep them occupied.
Instead, give them a box and see what they can create. I’m sure it will be a much more meaningful experience. Just think of all the brainstorming and problem solving involved with creating this arcade.
Watch the film. I promise you will love it.
