I love watching my children play. I truly believe it is through their play that they develop imagination and creativity. It is neat to see how everything comes to life through their eyes.
I don’t know about play being research, but if what Albert means is that it’s a way for kids to process things, then I would agree. I remember a girl at primary school (whose parents were divorced) wanting to bring divorce into one of our games. The teacher told her not to, but you couldn’t blame the girl because that was her life-experience.
Dropping in from 31 Dayers because I really appreciate you giving us all a space to share our posts, but it occurred to me I’d never actually commented on any of yours, so big thank-you to you. 🙂

Very good reminders!
Yes, yes, yes!! Sometimes when I’m on pinterest too much, I start to tell myself I’m not doing enough “activities” with the kiddos, but when it comes down to it, I just know that play is so good for them! Thanks for the reminders 🙂
