I wonder when our  spark of creativity or imagination begins.  It starts in early childhood.  You can clearly see the difference between children and adults.  Children embrace thoughts or ideas and just do it.  It’s an amazing thing to watch.  There isn’t the fear of failure or a time when it’s analyzed over and over to the point of re-calculations or first, second, or third drafts.  What you have is a child trying to have fun.  In that quest, he or she will think of ways to bring laughter and smiles to themselves and their playmate.  Imagination and creativity go hand in hand and children will surprise you with their CREATIONS.

With that in mind, I want to share with you the story of Caine’s Arcade.  Caine used his imagination and creativity to create a cardboard arcade that has made a global impact.  It has changed the way kids and families play together.  You want to know how?  Take a look at the video below.  You can even make a difference on a childs imagination!  Let’s keep those sparks burning….
