My Family: My Story

My Special Objects

Just like museums, our homes often contain special objects. Surprisingly these objects are often not the biggest or most expensive item in the home, but items that to anyone else are considered ordinary. It is only to the individual, that these items, found sitting on shelves, lying in boxes or tucked away in cupboards are thought special.

 

“….such precious things can be every day objects….it’s the meanings and feelings associated with the object that makes them special.” (Parent)

 

In this section we will explore our special objects, their stories and what is it that makes them so important to us.

  

“I don’t think we (as parents) sit down and talk to our children about why things are important….it’s nice to think about it and explain why these things are important so when our children grow up and have children, they can pass it on.” (Teacher)
