The Value of Unstructured Play Time for Kids

Let's remember the importance of unstructured play time for our children, all summer long.

"Free play allows children to develop the flexibility needed to adapt to changing circumstances and environments—an ability that comes in very handy when life becomes unpredictable as an adult."

Renate Hiller, a Green Meadow alumni parent and co-Director of The Fiber Craft Studio on Hungry Hollow Road, is featured in this wonderful short film on the importance of direct experience, educating our hands, interaction with nature, and natural materials for our children.

This summer, why not do some handwork with your child(ren)?
