Did you know Kid-Capsule has a category for Imagination? – Part I in a Series

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein

This is one of my all time favorite quotes and it’s very fitting for this post.

Kid-Capsule has a comprehensive collection of categories under which you save your memories and events. We believe it helps guide and inspire parents along the way. One such category is “Vivid Imagination” and it’s one I use quite often. Children have amazing minds so it’s important to document them in their life story, it just might help create a spark of inspiration at some point in time, right?

As a bonus, each category is equipped with several sub-categories. In “Vivid Imagination” we have “Drawings”. Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always loved to doodle. I’ve often wondered what life and adventures those “masterpieces”, ahem, had in my mind. Now, my little girl won’t have to wonder. Every time she’s enthralled in a drawing, I always ask her about it, snap a picture and save the details in Kid-Capsule.

Here’s a chance to document your little one’s imagination in action. Print this free Ellie fill in the blank coloring page at the bottom of this post on a standard letter sized sheet of paper. Ask them to replace the pencil she usually carries around with whatever they want. Then just sit back and be mesmerized by what they come up with. Don’t forget to save it in your Kid-Capsule!

If you would like to share their creations, go to our Facebook page and post them in the comments.

Have fun!

How do you use Kid-Capsule?

I have found it very interesting in speaking to Kid-Capsule users that different people have different ways of using the app.

I will be posting a couple of ways I love to use Kid-Capsule but I also want to hear from you and the great ways you choose to use the app and interpret the different categories. The goal is to inspire other people to keep track of the amazing moments they share with their kids.

  • Whimsical Words: I have a toddler so you can imagine the amazingly creative and funny things that come out of her mouth. This is the thing I most love to record at this stage in her journey through life and something I hope to share with her when she is older. I bet she will get a kick out of it. I mostly use the phrases sub-category to record these moments. I use this category for different things, such as when:
    • She says the darndest thing: “Look! It’s the lizard family!” when she saw a group of lizards in a garden
    • She doesn’t quite know her pronouns: “You’re being a dinosaur” instead of saying “I’m”
    • She starts using the correct word: She finally said “I want” instead of “You want”

  • Incredible Growth: I know it’s cliché but the truth is that they grow up extremely fast. I like to use this category to record the moments in which an item of clothing doesn’t fit her anymore. I attach a picture of that item for posterity.

  • Keen Brains: Specifically the read sub-category. It doesn’t have to be used only when they start reading books it can also be used when they start to understand letter sounds and their place in language. For example, the other day she said the following: “O is for Owl and B is for Búho” (búho is owl in spanish), it goes well in the Whimsical Word category but I thought this was a better fit.
