Arte digital, impressa e devidamente enquadrada, em homenagem ao projeto Free the Children!

Instagram is full of beautiful photos of #invitationstoplay that are neat, tidy, appealing to the eye and leave me wanting to create the perfect play #flatlay or #playtray. But, that isn’t who I am and the fact of the matter is, the children in my care choose how to spend their time, have freedom to choose any materials they want to play with in any way they choose to play with them!
.
.
With those things in mind, I am inviting you to take part in a challenge I’m calling the #pureplaycollective. .
.
Tag @learning.wild with #pureplaycollective if you snap a photo of children immersed in an organic play moment. Keep these parameters in mind as you snap away.... the play you are capturing:
1) must be child initiated
2) must be child led (no adult ideas allowed)
3) Tell us the story behind the photo! .
.
I’m excited to have these other accounts on board as part of this Pure Play Collective... give them a follow and see what the children in their care are up to!
@playfrontier
@bloom_childrens_center
@countrycottagepreschool
@imaginationstationpreschoolcp
.
Can’t wait see what pure play moments you can find! I may even have a little giveaway up my sleeve to announce soon for those who take part in the challenge!

After I Met Play...
.
.
I made a quick trip to San Francisco last weekend and had so much fun watching this sea lion bask in the sun (by himself) and then roll off the dock and play in the water (by himself or herself - not sure). There were hundreds of other sea lions around but I think this one needed some space AND WAS CLEARLY ENJOYING ITS TIME TO PLAY ALONE!
.
.
When young children are in a group setting and play alone often, our adult fears roll in and we want to make them all have friends and play with one another.
.
.
Play CAN be alone! In fact, solo play and parallel play are stages of child development! It’s ok!! And it is totally ok if your child prefers to play alone for long periods of time. We have to trust children, check in to find out if they are content, and let them play! Even if it is alone!

We have been delighted to support @befriendachildindetention, an organisation that has sent books, toys and letters to the refugee and asylum seeker children held in detention on Nauru.
From building their social media, to organising events, to placing national media stories and supplying artwork like these event posters, we’ve been honoured to support the organisation.

Yesterday I was taking a picture of a child and I backed up, fell backwards into this exact tire, flailed around like a slug stuck in a Chinese yo-yo and realized that tires make great “playground equipment”.
.
.
They are the best loose parts! The children stack them, climb on them, make obstacle courses with them, roll down the hill IN them (thank you race car tire) and even pretend they are boats.
.
.
What are your favorite unconventional loose parts for outdoors?

After I Met Play post 3.

I’ve always been a bit goofy. I like to have more fun than not. I am not funny at all and really am so envious of witty people and those who have the best comebacks. I think I hit the jackpot with my preschool team.
Meet Marissa. She is my favorite tall, brown haired coworker (see what I did there @thatmngirl ? 😂)
She and her daughter just started a super sweet IG account and they are all about play - @how.we.rolin
I have so much more fun at work now that play is in my life. It can be in yours too. Be silly, let go, sing at the top of your lungs even if you suck at singing, do something new. Be a kid again!
.
.
Also, have you ever been on one of these bouncy pillows before? We both had to go to the bathroom before we bounced but that may not even have worked (you will get it if you’ve ever birthed a child).

Vision: To use a positive action to free ALL the children of refugees on Nauru and give them a life in Australia, united with their parents. To further extend that to genuine refugees and close the concentration camps known as offshore detention centres. To never allow such a human rights perversion to occur in Australia again.

Mission: To bring together a choir of young people 16 years and under to rehearse and perform an anthem (Bring them here) in St John's Anglican Cathedral on the morning of Saturday 17th Nov in order for the performance to inspire in the moment and to be professionally audio and video recorded and produced to create a short documentary, music video and song release that will be released shortly after the performance to gain as much recognition as possible worldwide that Australians do not support the mandatory detention of genuine refugees or their children. A viral response is aimed for, with support also on traditional media, Television and radio.

After I Met Play- post 2...
.
.
After I Met Play, I slowed down. Things are child directed in our program and I wouldn’t change that for the world now. .
.
Today we had fresh snow on the ground! The teachers helped push kids down the hill on the sleds at first today but we also know when to step back and watch what happens if we don’t step in to help children all the time. Today the children figured out some pretty cool techniques to propel themselves down the slope when we stopped helping them! They also had to work together and communicate with each other to share sleds, help each other down and help each other back up!
.
.
Next time you want to step in and help, remember to slow down, step back and see what happens! .

Post 1 in the new series - After I Met Play
.
.
After I Met Play, and realized that play is intrinsic, I let go of teacher/adult directed craft projects and instead give the children access to all the supplies they could ever need so they can create whatever the heck their heart and mind feels like creating.
I’ve had these questions asked when I say we don’t do teacher directed crafts in our program:
“How do you know if the children can cut something out?” Answer: we have a “cutting pool” the children sit in and cut whatever we have in there- could be straws, yarn, paper, ribbon, crepe paper, leaves. We also allow children time to develop their fine motor skills through the use of play dough and other manipulatives.
“How do you know if they can follow directions?” Answer: we give children two or more step directions during transition times- “go to the bathroom, wash your hands, then get your coats on to go outdoors”. We also sing a lot of songs and rhymes that involve listening and moving a certain way.
.
.
There are many more I get asked, but we’ve accounted for it all and know that our kiddos are creating because they want to. And it leaves everyone a little happier, content and is developmentally appropriate as well.

We all had a lovely morning exploring a nature reserve we hadn't been to before we some friends.
It all got a bit lord of the flies, but that's the perfect way to spend a sunny Monday.
Especially when works got me😴😴

Here is an image that 6 yr old Samir drew for his mother. He said it shows his “mami”, Levis, with muscles because she is strong, and with a sword to make sure he is never taken again from her if he is brought back to her (as he hopes). These strong people, these strong families need OUR help. Use the link in our bio to get involved. .

Post 6 (I think) in the Before I Met Play Series
.
.
I’m just going to ramble a bunch of things I did before I Met Play that I don’t necessarily think are the most effective ways to get children to learn.
—wouldn’t allow them to lick a table with snow on it
—wouldn’t let them go up the slide
—made them sit crisscross applesauce at a very long circle time that included calendar and weather and counting and patterning
—pulled them from play to do a teacher directed activity or assessment of some sort
—made them do craft projects, step by step to finish with the same product
—didn’t go outside if it was raining or had just rained
—only read books at circle time
—assigned them carpet squares for circle time
—gave time outs when children weren’t sharing
AND SO MANY MORE THINGS I WOULD NEVER DO WITH CHILDREN NOW THAT I KNOW PLAY! .
.
.
I am passionate about helping others find the magic of play. It can be a long process but I’d love to help you with a trail guide to follow.
Would that be something you would be interested in learning more about?

What’s brown a sticky?
A STICK!! (Actual joke told to me by a preschooler!) Before I Met Play, sticks had to stay in the ground! That was seriously a rule that for some reason, I thought I had to follow. .
Fast forward... we play with sticks all day.
They are wands and art materials and launchers and tools and guns and knives and swords and babies and forest school currency. And, in the case of this photo - antlers. Ha! That’s my own kiddo at forest school! .
Sticks are one of the best loose parts a child can have access to. And they are free so that’s a bonus. .
What have you seen sticks become?

Rafiki? Check out @metowe 's latest Rafiki bracelets online or at their Toronto retail inside the CF Eaton Centre on the corner of Yonge and Dundas!

I bought this for @wemovement 's WE Day Toronto, out of respect for showing potential caring to providing children in Kenya the privilege to go to school. 😊
