No matter their cultural background, no matter their economic situation, kids will always find imaginative ways to have fun. Play is the business of childhood, allowing your child free rein to experiment with the world around him and the emotional world inside him.
While it may look like mere child’s play to you, there’s a lot of work – problem solving, skill building, overcoming physical and mental challenges – going on behind the scenes.
