Playing is not only a leisure activity, as it may be seen from an adult perspective. Playing is an important part of a child’s natural learning and development process. When playing, the child shapes her own emotional, social and cognitive identity. Playing is not only a mean of expression, it is also an exceedingly significant tool to instigate imagination and creativity.
