Wordless Wednesday...Watching Children Play
Something I think is so important is play... for children and for adults!
So if you’re reading this, I’m presuming that you’re past the child stage of your life and you can organize your own form of play.
But for children, play is crucial to their development. Besides wearing them out before their bedtime, play is how they learn...it helps to develop their creativity and imagination.
We had family over on Sunday and with the many toys that their grandmother brought over, little Raffe was more interested in the fire hydrant in front of our house.
He explained to his grandmother and cousin the purpose of the hydrant, where the hose went, and some creative ideas about other parts of the hydrant and their function.
If you get the chance to watch children at play...stop and enjoy it!! It’s worth your time.
Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood. Fred Rogers
