Children don't need self explanatory toys...give them a toilet paper roll or a stick and watch as their imaginations go wild! A horn, a wand, etc. the sky is the limit! And thankfully many city and state parks are realizing this. Natural play spaces are popping up all over the US featuring tree stumps, tee pees of twigs, sandy areas, etc. It's wonderful! Inspiring a child to imagine and create is one of natures best abilities. So check your local parks or forests and see if they have a natural play area, if so, great! Go check it out! If not gather with a group of like-minded parents and see if you can get one...and it's not expensive because there are not mass produced plastics, metals, or wood to purchase; you just work with nature!
