Unstructured and Child-Directed

Learning Through Play

Kids love to be messy, to explore, to experiment, and to create. But when do they have time for that with soccer practice, music lessons, dance recitals, and adults generally telling them what to do? Put aside the worksheets, and push in the chairs. Give your kids some time off from scheduled activities, and let them be in charge for a while. Let the kids make up the game, make up its rules, and play on their own terms. Your kids will have fun, all while exercising their creativity, improving their problem-solving skills, and boosting their self-confidence.
