I frequently write and speak about the importance of play. I also emphasize that children do not need expensive toys, gadgets, and programs to have fun and learn. Play is natural and can take place anywhere. The brain craves opportunities for fun and interaction.
This NBC story of children in Haiti is a fantastic example of the positive impact of play. It is sure to make you smile!
To help the children of Haiti you can make a donation to Save the Children or the American Red Cross.
