I saw this article from Today’s Parent on Twitter and thought it was super fun to read. I like that people are recognizing the importance of harboring creativity and encouraging creative play among young children. I think that the parenting trend kind of moved away from creative play and was replaced with too much structured play for a while. But, like the article says, when adults are telling kids how to play, then it is no longer play!
I look forward to using some of these ideas when my little boy is preschool age. :)
