From the Providence Children’s Museum, Rhode Island:

Unstructured, self-directed play is essential for children’s healthy development. But due to a number of factors, children today have fewer opportunities to engage in open-ended play. Here are some resources for more information and to encourage all of us to make time and space for kids’ play.

Follow the link for articles about play, a resource sheet of books, a play toolkit with great ideas for supporting play along with suggestions for activities; there is also details of their ‘Play Power’ exhibition.

Sounds like my kind of place!
