This year’s GSPD is February 6.  This stripe will be open to earn for a limited time.

This event is great for all ages, but mainly directed at elementary.

Some of the benefits of play include:

Play is important to healthy development of the brain;

Undirected play helps children learn how to work collaboratively, to share, to negotiate, to resolve conflicts, and learn self-advocacy skills;

When play is child-driven, children practice decision-making skills, move at their own pace, discover areas of interest on their own, and ultimately engage fully in the passions they wish to pursue;

Unstructured play develops creativity, leadership and group skills.

Play and unscheduled time that allows for peer interactions is an important component of  social-emotional learning;

Free, child-driven, creative play protects against the effects of pressure and stress.
