    Hey gang, this is a text about three orphaned siblings who've found a secure home in a foster family. I'm not sure what "spielen, was das Zeug und der Tag hergeben" means here. Any help you might be able to give would be great, thanks! :)

    Oh really? Wow I never would have come up with that - can anyone give a more detailed explanation of how it means that? Is it just a phrase? Thank you so much.
    Would something like "to their heart's content" fit the bill? Or is that changing the meaning a bit too much?
