So what is play good for*?
Social Benefits of Play
- Once again I write this from the top of my head, but I know science is quickly adding proof to most statements I make. It even improved my belief in play with many new insights, some of which I roughly mention. Go find the science in books like Play, how it shapes the brain, opens the imagination and Invigorates the soul, The Power of Play or this unrelated article also called the Power of Play, which talks about biological and relational advantages of having a playful state.
- I also used a lot of different (quotes in) pictures people posted on the internet to share. I may have mistakenly added one from someone not having that intention. Then I’ll remove it, when you ask.
