We loved this timeless article published in The Atlantic a couple summers ago: http://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2014/06/for-better-school-results-clear-the-schedule-and-let-kids-play/373144/.  And, we agree, free play is in fact the best summer school for children.  Read the full article for a detailed description of how a child’s executive function skills are built through play and an explanation of why free play is so critical to a child’s development!
