Kids have ideas. They are overflowing with them! And they are great ideas, because they’re not bound by what is “possible”. What if we could help kids discover how to give their ideas wings? What if our kids understood their own super powers?
Inspiration Sets are designed with no end in mind. They will not tell your kids exactly what they need to do, because nobody likes being told what to do. Your kids are smart enough to figure it out for themselves, and come up with their own unique experience. That’s the fun of it!
An Inspiration Set is like being in a room with many doors, each one leading to more ideas, discovery, and fun. The activities use simple, easy to find, open-ended resources. We want to show kids how much you can do with what you already have – you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment, packaging or waste.
It’s a world of freedom to explore ideas. There’s no wrong answers. There’s no “right” way to go. What they create today will be different to someone else – and different to what they can create tomorrow. It’s flexible and open-ended to suit however they think, and whatever they know.
The discovery is about them. What they can do, and what they are capable of doing. It’s about curiosity, wonder, laughter, and working together.
There’s creative activities, a science experiment, outdoor activities, a scavenger hunt, game ideas and more, all based loosely around a theme, so if they want to explore further, they can. They’ll uncover secret code names for the whole family. They’ll create, experiment, explore, discover, hunt, and play – and be totally inspired!
Kids can read and initiate the activities themselves. They can work together co-operatively, independently, or with an adult. By leading the activities themselves, they are empowered to go wherever their imagination takes them. There is no right way to do the activities – in fact we encourage experimentation, discovery and random tangents!
Working together builds lifelong skills in co-operation and negotiation. When they are working towards a goal, but with no set outcome, everyone can contribute ideas and learn from each other. They can try things, test ideas, assess and adapt. There is no limit to what they can create!
Hoist your sails and polish your hook, we’re off to sail the seven seas! Create maps, sink in quicksand, play pirate card games, and go on a treasure hunt.
The forest is calling, adventure awaits! We’ll kick start their imaginations by giving them their own fairy name, and suggestions for magical books, songs and family movies.
Up, Up, and Away!
Get ready for imagination to take flight! They’ll have their own pilot name, and suggestions for uplifting books, songs and family movies. They’ll be creating and flying kites and paper airplanes, and blowing incredible giant bubbles!
Secret Agent Mission
Your secret agent mission, should you choose to accept it…
…is to inspire kids to explore their own imagination and use their creativity in new ways. They’ll decode their own secret agent identity, create and solving codes, play games, explore secret worlds, and more!
Superheroes, it’s time for some serious super power. Everything you need to spark endless ideas. They’ll uncover a superhero code name and powers for the whole family. They’ll create their own superheroes and villains, invent machines, make real electrical circuits, and draw their own superhero comic!
