Welcome to 2021. The year of "play." At least that's what we here at Project Play are tagging it. Our hope is that after this pandemic, children around the globe will peek their heads out to the backyard and race out to play. The pandemic has forced families to stay inside. No school, no sports and no organized events have left children isolated like never before. "We always worried about technology's role in minimizing creative play," said Project Play author Marlene Byrne.
