When you see a recipe do you follow it completely or do you add a little of your own flavour? Are you the same with your play?
- I’m a big fan of experimenting and letting the children lead with their imagination.
- I love how they take everyday objects and use and reuse in many different ways.
- I love seeing what other people do and am influenced by it.
I can’t say when I came to those rules. I’ve glanced at Montessori books and recently spoke to an expert on Waldorf play, more to come on an upcoming podcast.
I want my kids to have fun with play and not let the learning be the driver.
