  1. I love this! More kids need to spend more time exploring nature. If they did, the education system would see a huge shift in behaviour.

    • Yes, and I believe they would also see a decline in behavioural issue diagnosis’ too…we label a lot, but could some of the issues be prevented by allowing for more play and being children….I think so!

  2. Love this quote so much I agree play is so important and teaches children pretty much everything they need to know about life!

  3. Children’s play years are so short these days, they really do need to make the most of it!

  6. This is so true, we also think it’s important for children to be bored as well, as it forces them to be creative and entertain themselves. This is when my mummy finds me playing on me own and creating epic stories!

    • Yes being bored is very important and my three also make up their best stories to play to when they are bored 🙂

  7. Totally agree with you lovely . More play and less laptops I say

  8. I love standing back and watching what they learn when playing, we can forget too easily how much they gain

  9. Playtime is super important! What do you suggest to make playtime with mommy and daddy a much more enriching experience?

    • Let them lead it most definitely!! I am one for more unstructured play and leaving them to it, and allowing them time to do it. But if as parents we are involved remember it is their games and ideas, and follow their lead…..I have to really bite my tongue to stop suggestions popping out, but this is their game and what they excel at 🙂 We need to remember it is their imaginative play.
