The imagination is an essential tool of the mind, a fundamental way of thinking, an indispensable means of becoming and remaining human. Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct. Play matters because people matter. It reminds us of our interdependence and gives us a chance to really see other people.
And in turn, to be really and truly seen. In play always behaves beyond his average age, above his daily behavior. In play it is as though he were a head taller than himself. Creative people are curious, flexible, persistent, and independent with a tremendous spirit of adventure and a love of play. Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn.
A stick can be a magic wand.
A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero. Play is hard to maintain as you get older. You get less playful. Creativity and the world of the imagination—the beauty of what we see as and the kind of play that we experience as —can be a way for us to survive tough times. Play touches and stimulates vitality, awakening the whole person—mind and body, intelligence and creativity, spontaneity and intuition.
Through observing children at play, we recognize what their worries, concerns, and fantasies are. We learn about their basic needs, their feelings of love and anger, their rivalries and fears of failure, their secret wishes and desires.
The very existence of youth is due in part to the necessity for play; the animal does not play because he is young, he has a period of youth because he must play.

It is in playing, and only in playing, that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self. Imagination is the only key to the future. Without it, none exists—with it all things are possible. Children who play creatively find multiple uses for objects.
They can transform a blanket into a tent one day and a cave the next. A stick can be a magic want, a sword, a lightsaber, or a mast for a schooner. Creativity in and of itself is important for remaining health, reamining connected to yourself and connected to the world. Now in myth and ritual the great instinctive forces of civilized life have their origin: law and order, commerce and profit, craft and art, poetry, wisdom and science. All are rooted in the primeval soil of play. The playing adult steps sideward into another reality; the playing child advances forward to new stages of mastery.
Ritual grew up in sacred play; poetry was born in play and nourished on play; music and dancing were pure play…. We have to conclude, therefore, that civilization is, in its earliest phases, played. It does not come from play…it arises in and as play, and never leaves it. We all need empty hours in our lives or we will have no time to create or dream. The child amidst his baubles is learning the action of light, motion, gravity, muscular force…. As astronauts and space travelers children puzzle over the future; as dinosaurs and princesses they unearth the past.
As weather reporters and restaurant workers they make sense of reality; as monsters and gremlins they make sense of the unreal. Anything that engages your creative mind—the ability to make connections between unrelated things and imagine new ways to communication—is good for you. Imagination is the thing that differentiates us from other sentient species on this planet.
We have the ability to place our attention in a past, present, or future. That is a uniquely human superpower. Those things can help us in life.
