This School Has A Bench For Kids To Sit On When They Don't Have Anyone To Play With

"Somebody will come find you and they'll include you in their game."

When you're a kid, finding someone to play with can be hard. That's why the Willowgrove School in Saskatoon, Canada, just installed a new bench in their playground called the "buddy bench." Kids can sit on the bench when they'd like to be invited to play.

When 7-year-old student, Matthew Henkelman, was asked by CBCNews if he had used the buddy-bench before, he said he had. He said only took about "a minute" for other kids to ask him to join them on the playground.
