The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct. – Carl Young

We all need to play…  Toddlers, school age children, teens, adults, couples, families, elderly persons; all of us.  Playing allows us to enjoy life, laugh more often, find solutions, have hope for the future, worry less, have better self-esteem and have more satisfying relationships.

Play is the work of childhood…  It is the way children prefer to communicate with others and make sense of their world.  If we are not given permission to play as children, we often have issues with being happy, well-adjusted adults.
