Einstein at Play

Albert Einstein famously said, “Combinatory play seems to the essential feature in productive thought.”  He was known for being silly, eccentric and brilliant.  Children’s brains work a lot like Einstein’s.  Social convention has yet to prevent them from using a multidisciplinary approach to learning, they are not afraid to take risks and fail, and they are renown for being wildly creative.  But, unlike Einstein and other adults, children enjoy the added benefit of having high neural plasticity, being unencumbered by social convention and absorbing more raw data daily.  Learn how to use these strengths to nurture productive thought through play in children, in order to encourage substantive learning experiences, as well as general cognitive and personal growth, for your child.
