Its just such a broad word, and thats why I think I might struggle trying to get into this assignment. As I understand it our assignment is referring to the type of play that we engage in for enjoyment purposes, whether that means being involved in sports, performing arts, or just playing a simple game of catch. Play has one purpose.. and thats to have fun.
