This thought-provoking video about the importance of play for young children is soooo good.
The need for play is one of the key reasons we have chosen to home educate Caroline. She is becoming an amazing problem solver because she has had so much unstructured time to explore and play. Playing and creating nearly every day for the past four years with TinkerToys alone has been fantastic for her. Her ability to create, think outside the box, and problem solve is so far beyond her age level.
Would she learn to adapt to little to no playtime if she was in a school setting? Yes.
She would learn to cope.
But, oh how much she would miss!
What jumps out to you in the video?
