They’ve been in there for an hour.
Two children, creating magic spells, hiding from wolves and naughty witches and inventing their own language.
But what if we had rushed off this afternoon to do an organised activity? Or sat down and done homework or put the tv on?
I know this doesn’t happen all the time but sometimes if you let your children be free they create their own fun.
We don’t need to immerse our children in a different organised activity every day because they need it, or they love it, or we need to keep them busy.
You’d be surprised how much children love playing and how much they learn from free play.
A new language has been invented
New rules in a far off land have been written down.
Magic spells have been created.
A new type of dinosaur has been discovered
And a friendship has been strengthened.
Let your children play freely, let them read books that introduce them to far off lands so they can continue to delve deeper into worlds that the adults need to remember more of.
