Dust off the old lawn chairs. Lace up those unused sneakers. Put on an extra layer of sunscreen. Today we go out and PLAY! While the notion may sound simple, “...the genius of play is that, in playing, we create imaginative new cognitive combinations. And in creating those novel combinations, we find what works” (Brown, 2009). Play fuels our imagination, creativity, problem-solving abilities, and improves our overall mental health. It is amazing that something so important happens so infrequently in our everyday lives.
To fight this trend, we have taken the best traditional (and not-so-traditional) lawn games and created a team bonding event full of playful surprises dedicated to the pursuit, discovery, and mastery of the art of play. A team that plays together, stays together!
