As a child growing up, I can remember the games I played. Some of them were made up and the rules were made as we went along. We had fun, never realizing what we were doing was helping us develop physically, mentally, and emotionally. Ask any young child if they love recess at school and you will probably get a resounding yes! For kids, it is a way to have fun. For parents, our kids playing is a way for them to burn off some of their endless energy. However, “play” is more than meets the eye! That is The Genius of Play!
