Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play.
Play is training for the unexpected.
A child loves his play, not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.
Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.
Children learn as they play. Most importantly,
in play children learn how to learn.
~O. Fred Donaldson
Life must be lived as play.
Play is our brain's favorite way of learning.
Whether we are by a creek, in the woods, at a playground, in our yard, in the car, at home, or at the library -- wherever we go, whatever we are doing, we have tales and adventures that come along. Ocean rescues, super ninjas, scientists saving the planet, knights on a quest, treacherous mountain treks, friendly dragons, amazing characters and plots and story lines. We take the play with us. Doesn't get much better than that.
