Take a few minutes to watch a fun little film on play and called "Play". It is from our friends at Play Wales who are quite brilliant when it comes to all things play. (Click on the picture to get the video to play.)
There is a "concept" of play called "loose parts play," that basically means that kids like to play with all kinds of junk. You know the old story - you buy an expensive gift for a child who then spends the rest of the afternoon playing with the box the gift came in. It's true.
Enjoy the video and then enjoy some time outside with the "wee ones".
