Are you ready to make dreams come true?

We’re dedicated to teaching kids how to dream, how to turn dreams into reality, and how to have fun doing it by using our formula: Dream it! Map it! Play it! We use traditional pencil-and-paper games and evidence-based activities that teach important concepts, and put them into action right away — because we all know that kids learn by doing — playing!

Have you ever asked yourself…

“What good is school?” Or: “Why bother going to work every day?” or “Why do anything?” Well, here is the answer: So you can live the life of your dreams! And, we’re here to help you create that dream and discover the passion that makes life worth living. When you tap into this passion, suddenly things like school, work and exercise aren’t chores anymore, but the tools to making dreams a reality and building an amazing life. So get ready — with our website and new book as your guide, not even the sky is the limit.

You are born with creative superpowers. You can be or do or have anything. And all you need to make it happen is — Dream it! Map it! Play it!

Our Motto

How to turn dreams into reality

Step 1 Dream it! Symbolized by the dream cap, thinking hat.

Step 1:
Dream it!

Everything begins with a dream. Take the first step in creating a new reality — dream big! If you could do anything, what would you do? This first step is to find a dream that you are passionate about, something that you would walk to the ends of the earth to accomplish. We wrote a book all about step 1 called — of course — Dream It!

Step 2 Map it! Symbolized by the paper hat made from a treasure map.

Step 2:
Map it!

Once you choose a dream and commit to making it happen, now it is time to begin planning your journey. What steps do you need to take to reach your destination? What supplies will you need to bring with you? When will you begin? What will you do in case of bad weather? First, declare your commitment to the world. The more people you inspire, the merrier.

Step 3 Play it! Symbolized by the Jester Hat

Step 3:
Play it!

Once you have mapped (planned) your dream, you just have to do it. Sounds easy, right? The only thing separating you from your dream is participation — taking steps of action, trying and modifying, overcoming physical and emotional obstacles, and remembering to savor the accomplishments every step of the way.
