Play Like A Child


If you have small children, this is not a far fetched thought.  You probably know exactly what play looks and sounds like.  But if your children are grown or if you do not have children in your life – maybe you have forgotten what play is all about.

Children do not have an agenda when they get together to play.  They do not even have to know each other – let alone call each other up and schedule an appointment to play.  Play is very spontaneous.  They make it up as they go.  One minute they are pirates on the open sea; the next they are baseball players in a huge stadium.  They love to let their imaginations soar.

If you have not seen what play looks like lately, find some children and watch.  Then take yourself out for a play date.  Find a swing, skip instead of walk, make up a song and sing it, play in a fountain – do something silly just for the fun of it.

Play is great for our spirit, our mind and even our body.

  1. My children have been my greatest teacher! Meanwhile they are 12, 15 and 19. But iIn each state of their development they thaught me to see live through the eyes of a child or growing and developing person.

  2. I love this post, and couldn’t agree more! Playing like a child is something we all seem to forget to do as we grow up. A favorite case in point in my book “Life Is Full of Sweet Spots – An Exploration of Joy” is the interview with Tracy Kane, author/illustrator of books on building tiny little houses for magical fairy visitors. Sometimes, she says, she comes across parents working right along with their kids building little houses for these wee visitors. “It brings back the childhood joy.”


I love to hear from you!
