Imagination: Creative Thinking Unleashed

Imagination: Creative Thinking Unleashed | Recess for the Mind | Scoop.it

Jazmine Chai's insight:

Our imagination has to be taken care of just like you would take care of plants. We need water, sun, and nutrients for our imagination to thrive.

Jazmine Chai's insight:
