I’m with my grandparents for the weekend until my parents get back from a conference in Pittsburgh. Today we went to the park. I was thinking about how when you see kids on the playground they are smiling and thinking of new games to play. They are enjoying themselves while practicing creative thinking.
Why is it that playground time goes away? Don’t all people need time to practice creativity? When I kidnapped my friends we had gone to an interactive art park. We played on everything like it was a playground and had a blast. We imagined being on a spider and we all rode on it’s back. We swung into the trees. We swung and climbed to the top of structures. Why don’t high schoolers have their own playground? A place for them to have fun practicing creativity?
