Games and sports play a vital role in the development of the child. To play is a natural instinct in a child and it has a universal character. And the world over, every child wants to play. Why should a child play? There are several interesting theories. One is the ‘instinct theory’. It is through sheer instinct that a child loves to play; it is a natural physical action. There is another theory that suggests that a child has an excessive and expendable energy and the only way it can be spent is through playing.
