Wordless Wednesday: Children at Play


"Birds fly, fish swim, and children play." — Dr. Garry Landreth

 Play is an essential part a child's development. Even when children have very little to play with, they find creative ways to make fun out of their surroundings. See if you recognize some of the games COTN children are playing in the photos below.
