Why Play? This Is Serious

Play is the answer to how anything new comes about.

- Jean Piaget -

Why Play? This Is Serious

While play is fun, it also has serious benefits -- for everyone. "Play and games (with and without rules) enable us to learn about ourselves, who we want to be, and how we see ourselves in the world. Play has huge benefits for people of all ages, including how to solve problems, gain knowledge, learn to be in a group, and develop creativity and imagination." In this article, Sarah Huxley explores the role of play in history and anthropology for individuals and society and shares recent research on the subject. She also talks about her new initiative Toybox Mums Collective, where "mums can develop their own skills and contribute to toy designs that will improve their children's capacities." Mothers have the power to change the world by influencing their children and the way they play. Find out how Huxley hopes to help. { read more }
