I truly believe in this cause. It’s so easy to see how playtime benefits kids, both in school and out — from academia to everyday. I grew up loving physical activities (and still do), and clearly recall feeling rejuvenated in class after recess. On a more basic level, it’s simply amazing to see how much kids enjoy their play.
