Your life, in jellybeans
How to explain to a child (or a parent) the value of time.
Are we there yet?
How old are you?
How long until my birthday?
I can’t WAIT until I’m 18!
Time is a concept most humans wrestle with. From feeling
like everything takes forever when you’re small, to feeling as though the
years- or even decades- are flying past, it’s hard to explain time in a way
that children and adults can grasp.
This video does it brilliantly. Not only does it quantify
the amount of time we may or may not have alive, but it also delivers a pithy
message about how we use that time, especially those precious few moments we
have left after our duties and responsibilities are dispatched.
It’s a great video to show young children to help them
understand why they shouldn’t wish away chunks of their lives and also to share
with parents who forget to savour the time they have.
