Event Description:

As children we chase fireflies, climb trees, build sand castles, draw pictures, and play dress-up. As we grow up, we too often grow toward passive play and away from active play.

Re-capturing the pleasure of childhood play and find new possibilities that fit  changing lifestyles and physical capabilities. Get the facts in an informative presentation, and then brainstorm new ways to express your exuberance and joy. Finally, turn those ideas into actions as you practice being playful.
