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 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.”
