Yea for creativity in play and unstructured moments. One day our youngest daughter called me from babysitting and said, "Thank you for letting us play and not providing everything for us to do. These children don't know how to play!" We are doing children an injustice scheduling every second and letting only their fingers get exercise.

Right on! Sometimes being patiently bored is a talent. We don't have to be entertained every minute of the day. I was recently traveling with my 7 yr old granddaughter. We were waiting for our luggage to come to the airport carousel. She asked what we were going to do that was fun while we waited. I had my iPad she could have played a game on, or we could have played some other quiet game, but I told her we were just going to wait patiently, talk and be bored a little. We both survived.
