The Theme Game #3

It’s Theme Game time!  The time to be creative and possibly win a little prize too, courtesy of The Reading Residence and Red Peffer’s linky.  This week the theme is ‘Play’.

The main feeling I get from the word play, is of it’s universal nature.  Play is classless, cultureless, sexless, ageless and is not bound by species. 

Children play….

I think this quote sums up how important it is for all of us

We could always say we are doing research…
