The Value of Unstructured Play Time for Kids

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

A great quote: 

"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."
