Let'em Play series investigates the importance of play. Children under forced feeding culture have no time to play due to a large amount of homework and extracurricular activities in their daily life. Playtime is an integrative role for children’s development before they enter their adulthood. When children play, they solve problems and experience themselves as competent and masterful individuals. Through play, children are able to discover and invent solutions to challenges. In this series, I am questioning is playing an act of waste of time? If not, how do we keep that fun, childlike freedom well and never let age or high-pressure education style extinguish the fire of our inner child?
