    Simple and meaningful

    I gave this banner as a gift for my grandchild’s new nursery. It looks wonderful and speaks to the importance of play for children without me saying a word!

    play is the work of the child-banner

    I absolutely LOVE this banner. The aesthetic works so well within my private practice Larkspur Counselling Therapy where I provide therapeutic counselling through play for children. I also work with youth and young adults and it's a great reminder to all ages that play is so important! Our inner child needs play!

    Thanks for offering such beautiful products!
