Childhood memories help build the character of a person and also serves as the foundation for the imagination of one’s mind. The toys that children have to play with are a motivator in the personality that is developing as they grow up. Many children have imagination to make toys out of almost nothing. Making houses out of boxes that may have a window and a door or a tent out of a blanket over a couple of chairs is a childhood memory second to none. Wooden forts outside is also a memory for many. A child can make a guitar out of a board by pounding a few small nails at the top and the bottom and then putting rubber bands on these nails for strings. Adults still having the heart of the child within still love to dwell on these memories as they have their own children and grandchildren.
One of my favorite childhood memories was when my dad brought left over lumber scraps home from the construction site he worked at and my mom used these to make furniture for my doll house that she had made out of 2 apple boxes attached side by side. The furniture was so much like the real furniture we had in the house we lived in. This is where she understands her passion for all things miniature. She made a stove and a fridge or from the scrap wood, precision-made items for my doll house, furniture, cloth blankets and pillows for the beds and the crib; and accessories for the doll house. She bought dolls the right size to fit in the doll house to help me with my imagination as I played with them. She helped me have a great memory.
