Just playing #2

This post is part of the Just playing series inspired and started by Child Central Station.

Look at all the fun, emotions and discoveries children around you have when they are ‘just playing’ :)

Have a look at the photos here and tell us:

What is the child doing here?
What do you see?
What learning is taking place?
What skills are being practiced/developed?

One girl.
One scarf.
A ton of fun.
A lot of surprises.
Heaps of discoveries.
Learning. Working. Playing.

Just playing?

This post is part of the Just playing series inspired by Childcentralstation.

Instead of us telling you about play – YOU are invited to watch play at its best. Observe the pictures and tell us: What do you see?

What is happening in the photos?
Who are the players?
What materials are present?
What are the developmental values embedded – possibly – in the scenarios?
Why is any of this play important?

Three kids age 1, 2 and 3 discovered this gutter and small stones today. The obvious thing to do was… well throw the stones down the gutter. At the bottom was some rainwater left from the previous rainy days. They simply couldn’t stop.

All three of them just played and made their own experiences. The stones. The holes. The water. Sounds.

I almost forgot to mention a 35year old enjoying this play by simply watching the kids. Feel their experiences. Hear the sounds, the laughter, the joy.

Were they really just playing?
