Secret #2: Fuel Curiosity Early – and Often To kids, Dini says, “Start writing and drawing now! The earlier you start thinking up ideas the better. You could create the next Tom & Jerry, or Spongebob, or whatever!” To parents, he advises: “Encourage your kids to be creative. When you see them tracing a character from TV or a comic, say something like, ‘That's nice, now how about you create a character yourself?’ Keep kids curious and excited about creating. And don't throw anything away! Once you magnet a finger painting onto the fridge, it stays up at least until high school graduation. That's the rule.”
