Imagine every detail of an arrow traveling through space. This activity helps children practice imagining and paying attention to details.
- No materials are needed
- Settle into a comfortable place, either indoors or outdoors. Imagine there is an arrow extending away from you and traveling slowly through space for one mile.
- As the arrow travels for one mile straight ahead, imagine all of the things it will pass through. Imagine all of the details, no matter how small. What sounds and smells will the arrow encounter? If you are indoors, what will the arrow pass through first? A wall? A piece of furniture? Think about what is inside the wall or the furniture. What comes next? If you are outside, will the arrow go through a field? What might live in the field? At the end of the mile, imagine where the arrow will end up. Where will the arrow be?
