A few days ago we watched ‘A Life On Our Planet’. And it had such an impact on me that I decided to write a blogpost about it. Actually, more than one blogpost. As one would simply not be enough, I would need to leave out too much valuable information.
The reason why I decided to write about this topic on one hand is that not everyone can watch the film. On the other hand is that our actions have been affecting our children's future and we must act now if we don’t want them to struggle and if we want them to experience the beauty and magic of our planet.
If we would like children to learn how to solve problems, work towards individual or collective goals, or improve active listening skills, structured play is the answer. Unstructured play on the other hand builds important qualities such as creativity, empathy and imagination.
