Why children need to play
What happens when water doesn't flow or birds don't fly?
"Children play for the same reason water flows and birds fly" (Fred O. Donaldson)
Play is a basic need of children. If they don't play - or not enough - then they are no longer balanced.
But they don't need much for that, just time and an environment that encourages play and doesn't prevent it. Lots of contact with nature and other children, selected toys and little time in front of screens are usually enough to encourage play in the best possible way!
What are you doing to meet this basic need of your children?
All the best,
