Maria Montessori, the Italian physician, educator, and noted humanitarian, said it best; “Play IS the work of children.”  As adults, we sometimes forget that play is how children learn to process life.  From the smallest details, like noticing colors and sounds, to bigger life lessons like fair play, and getting along with others. Exercise is an important part of play and serves to nourish the health of the growing body.  Encouraging play and exercise while our kids are young will set the pace of how they may continue to nurture their bodies and minds as they move into adolescence and adulthood. “Healthy body, healthy mind” is a...
