Why We Play

Why We Play

Why We Play explains why play is still necessary for adults. It includes exercises to get some short play sessions into your life.

Even though I play video and mobile games every day, a few more ideas are always welcome. I particularly liked Scribble Art. Take a plain piece of paper and a pencil. Close your eyes and scribble for a few minutes with your non-dominant hand. Open your eyes and turn the paper 180 degrees. Try to draw a picture using your scribbles. It reminded me of seeing objects in clouds, which I haven’t done since I was a child.

Even if Scribble Art is not for you, each chapter contains several more exercises to practice having fun. Overall, Why We Play is a useful book to regenerate the playfulness and creativeness that many of us lost as we grew up. 4 stars!

Thanks to Thread Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
