Lost Art of Play

New and as well as tried & true old fashioned games for all ages; some for groups and a few for just one. This also includes plenty of indoor and outside crafts, tips and DIY creative ideas.

For children play is important in developing imagination, learning developmental abilities, as well as countless other talents. For adults it’s a great stress reliever, connect us to others (get us back to our family and friends!), and as George Bernard Shaw so aptly put it: “We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”
