We have shared in the past 7 things kids learn through play and benefits of play to child’s happiness. Today we would like to share with you some of our favorite quotes about the importance of play for children, especially young children who can use play to explore the world around them and learn so much!
We decided to use rainbow colors for these quotes and if you’re a preschool or kindergarten teacher, or simply a parent who would love to frame these as posters and add them to your classroom or child’s room, we made all of these posters available as one downloadable file. You can find the link to download all of these quote posters on the bottom of this page.
