                                                              Play provides the power to our ability to think and work creatively. Play installs a sense of creativity in both children and adults. By removing the strain and constraints of the real world, play allows us to openly explore possibilities in our work. But play offers us more than mere escape from reality, it also offers us exposure to a diversity of perspectives. The research shows that play-like activities put us into a psychological state where it’s ok to fail, where it’s ok to wonder “what if?”
