The importance of Play
“Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength. Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children at a very early age engage and interact in the world around them.”
Play is important to not only children but adults too.
Play and Adults don’t really go together, often for brief moments we ‘play’ we act a role with our children where we imitate play for them but never for ourselves.
Play in adulthood often gets put to the side, on the back burner and often becomes something we get disconnected to as we get older.
When was the last time you made time for Play? Honest, true, Play for yourself and for your family?
Play is so wonderfully accessible – as it can be so open and all you need is imagination and space. Play isn’t toys and things and objects, Play has the power to transform objects into new objects and take us away from our living room to another world!
When was the last time you played? Really let go of all responsibilities and taking yourself into a state of pure, joyful, play?
The kind of play where you are pretending to be a monkey, the screeching, and arms swinging kind?
The kind of play where you get lost on an imaginary island and you have to find your way back?
When was the last time you played with movement?
Played with how you can move in new exciting ways? Can do move this way or that way?
Can you crawl from this side of the room without using your arms?
The kind of play that means you lose track of time and before you know it you’re laughing so hard your tummy hurts?
When was the last time you unplugged as a whole family and really came together to do something fun, playful, and totally at the moment?
