Create a place where children can keep their most treasured objects. Offer one or more appealing spaces where children can display their treasures. As we honor the items children love, as well as our own, we model gratitude and we show that we can give things personal meaning and value. There may be special things your child finds in nature, favorite books, photos of family members, meaningful items from your heritage, flowers, rocks, crystals, toys, photos, art works, pictures of animals, vacation memorabilia, figurines – in short, things that delight your child’s heart.
