Fantasy and Experiential Wishes
“I wish to be . . .”
Many children, especially the littlest ones, make fantasy wishes. They wish to be a Jedi Knight or a princess. They may wish to be a supermodel for a day and be in a magazine.
“I wish to go . . .”
Children make wishes to travel to far away places like Hawaii, Japan or New Zealand. Others wish to travel closer to home to ride on a train through the mountains or skate down the Rideau Canal in Ottawa. Some travel to events like the Olympics, or ask to visit the set of Sesame Street. Travel wishes take children as far as their imagination will allow.
“I wish to have . . .”
Gift wishes include computers and home entertainment centers. They may also turn into shopping sprees and more unusual dreams like a backyard waterpark.
“I wish to meet . . .”
Some children wish to meet someone very special–a celebrity who has been a hero, a role-model, a motivator, an inspiration through a very difficult time in their life. We have fulfilled wishes to meet Steve Nash, Johnny Depp, Robin Williams, Shania Twain, Curtis Joseph, and even Spiderman!
