This assignment should be at least 2 full pages, double spaced in length (points will be deducted if this minimum length is not met).

2. How did this “play” meet at least one of the definitions of play: pleasurable and enjoyable, no extrinsic goals, spontaneous and voluntary, active engagement, and make-believe?
