Purposeless Play

Growing up, our lives revolved around playing.

Whether it was riding bikes, building forts, playing sports or something entirely made up. We immersed ourselves in play that served no purpose.

I recently listened to a podcast about how play is such an indispensable component of being human.

When children play it builds their mental capacity and character for a number of different things, that last a lifetime; creativity, empathy, compassion, trust, irony, problem solving.
