The Future of Play
Play is at the heart of emotional wellbeing and mental health. Free play in particular is critical to the balanced development of children. In 2010 the LEGO Learning Institute has carried out a foundational research study in partnership with academic experts to explore the benefits of play, the many ways of playing and the relevance of the different types of play for child development and the stimulation of adults.
The report highlights the deep connections between play, learning and creativity and how the foundations for this are laid in children’s play, furthermore showing how play, regardless of age, remains an essential ingredient in how we fuel our creativity and capacity as learners.
