Continuing the series on quotes about play, this week’s quote comes from Stuart Brown, the founder of The National Institute for Play. Brown has written the book Play and worked extensively in various capacities to advocate for play and to warn of the serious consequences of neglecting play for our young children.
“Play energizes us and enlivens us. It eases our burdens. It renews our natural sense of optimism and opens us up to new possibilities.” I love the connection between play and opening up to new possibilities. Last week I wrote about 5 creative ways to open a world of possible for your little ones.
He gave a TED talk called Play Is More Than Just Fun. Fascinating stuff!
What does your play look like today?
