Kids Free Play Activities --children playing


Play is vital for the development of children of all ages. It is the natural way children learn and is the way their brains have adapted and evolved for optimum development. For happy, healthy children, bring on the unstructured play (that ‘free’ play that allows children to create their own ‘rules’ without planning and scheduling from adults. The stuff where a cardboard box can be a space ship, car, house, goblin trap, and hot air balloon all in one afternoon). Here are some ideas to help you get started.




P.S. Need it even easier? I wrote a book called 1,001 Boredom Busting Play Ideas that includes all of these great play ideas and MORE in one convenient place. Check it out.
