“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.
But for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.”
~ Fred (Mr.) Rogers

Coming later this year:
A new addition to the Life Media family of digital magazines!

Child's Play Magazine

Child's Play Magazine will provide inspiration and research about the importance of play to children's development and learning, as well as a wealth of reviews of games and toys,  books and films about play. We will also explore how adults can learn from their children to become more spontaneously playful. So please join some of the world's experts on the benefits of play, as well as parents and educators, as we create the best play environments possible for our children (and ourselves!).

You can support the preparation and launch of this unique magazine by signing up as a Charter just half the cost of a regular subscription.

After you become a Charter Subscriber, and while you're waiting for the first issue, we invite you to explore this website using the links in the navigation bar above, contact us if you want to contributre or advertise, and read some of the research, articles, and quotes we have collected.

Have Child, Will Get Outside: Whether you’d like to get outside right now, or are planning for your next vacation, there is no reason to let having a young child in your family stop you. Outdoor activities are a fun and inexpensive way to get your kids up and moving, avoiding the obesity epidemic, and forging life-long habits and passions. The outdoors provides a great natural learning experience, as well as unique opportunities to bond with your child without the distractions of daily life. And it doesn't have to be expensive. With a little bit of preparation, children of all ages can accompany you as you enjoy outdoor activities year ‘round. Read more of this article . . .
