Imaginator Sindy’s Daydreams & Doodles

Featured

Hi-de-ho! I’m Imaginator Sindy.

What’s an Imaginator?

An “Imaginator” is someone who uses their imagination, especially to create something – like books!

That’s me! I create all sorts of things: books, pictures, stories, crafts, and all sorts of fun!

You can be an Imaginator too. Do you like to use your imagination? Do you create things or ideas?

Super Easy Origami

I just learned how to make a super easy origami box! It’s called a Magazine Box, or sometimes a Trash Box. I like to call it a Magic Box because it’s so simple, and then suddenly it pops up into a fun box.

In face, it’s so easy that I think I’ll teach my six-year-old nephew. ๐Ÿ™‚

Origami Magazine Box

If you would like to make one of these little boxes, I found some easy to understand instructions on make-origami.com

A Sou-Western Wind

It’s really windy outside my apartment today. My landlady says it’s called a Sou-Western Wind. That’s cowboy talk and means the wind is coming from the South-West.

I think I’ll talk like a cowboy today about this here Sou-Western wind as wild as a herd of horses. ๐Ÿ˜‰

You, Your Little One, and Nanowrimo

It’s Nanowrimo! Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month. No, you don’t have to write a novel this November, but it’s a great time to work on writing, drawing, or any project you’ve been wanting to do for a long time.

With a parent’s help, even the little kids can join in the fun of Nanowrimo:

  • Try to work on a project together
  • Encourage them to set a goal for this month, whether it’s related to reading or not, and help them do it
  • Help them write a story or draw a picture
  • Have a special day (or even a party) based on one of their favorite books
  • Pick one of your child’s favorite books and help them list why they like it

What am I planning to do this month? A lot. Christmas is coming so I thought I’d work on a story for Christmas. I also want to work on an official Imaginator Sindy website, a story for my blog readers, and finish some stories to send to an agent. I probably won’t get it all done this month, and that’s okay, but I will try my hardest to get them ALL done.

You Could Be In Your Favorite Movie!

I dreamed last night that I got the chance to be in my favorite movie. It was only a split second (that’s barely enough time to recognize me if you were looking), but I was so proud of that tiny bit of time.

But alas, when I woke up it was just a dream and hadn’t really happened. Then I remembered, my town has what’s called a Community Theatre. That means anyone in town who wants to can come and be in the story they’re currently working on. Even if it’s not your favorite story, you can suggest it and in the meantime help them with what they are doing. It’s loads of fun and you get to pretend you’re in your favorite stories. Have your Mom or Dad record a video of it and you’ll be in your favorite movie – and not just for a split second. Who knows, maybe you’ll get to be your favorite character!

Artist or Not – Art Fun and Learning for 2014

There’s a new YouTube channel with a new show coming next year called The Art Assignment. I know, you don’t want another “Homework Assignment,” but this is different because you don’t have to do it – you GET to do it! It’s up to you!

Every week they interview an artist from around the country who will give you a new assignment. It could be anything from sculpture to film. And don’t forget, you don’t have to be good at something to try it and have fun with it. I’m not very good at film, but I’ll try it anyway. Who knows, maybe I’m better than I think.

Since this is a “general audience” show, make sure to have your parents preview each episode to make sure it’s good (unless you are the parent, then you can preview it for yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and then they can help you with the assignment!

I can’t wait to see what kind of assignments they give and to try out a new art form! In fact, while I’m waiting I might do the “possible assignments” they mention.

Dream – Giant Bouncy Slide :)

Dreamed last night that someone built a big water park. Next to that was a big, fancy hotel. It was 5 stories tall! (I know, that’s not very tall in New York, but it is around here.)

The best part was the bouncy slide that was even bigger than the hotel! It felt like you were bouncing and sliding (and then climbing) for ages!
