“A little nonsense now and then, is cherished by the wisest men.”
– Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator
All children should have a safe and creative space to play – to develop the heart, mind, body and spirit. Sweet Flicker, there would have been lots of play in our home. This I guarantee.
Sadly many children are not given the chance to play because they live in neighborhoods with no access to safe play places. In fact, many communities that have a very high density of children are lacking any form of basic playground. An organization called KaBoom! is trying to change that by building awesome, innovative playgrounds in these so-called “play deserts.” They want to make sure there is a place to play within walking distance of every child in America. Wouldn’t that be amazing?
It would give us great pleasure if more kids got the chance to simply be kids – to play – because of you, sweet Flicker. Hopefully this will make you smile, too.
