Play #TheGallery


“It is a happy talent to know how to play.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Studying for my HNC in Early Education has taught me a lot of things but the most important thing and most repeated thing I have learnt is that children need play in order to learn. They thrive on having play in their lives. They use it to build knowledge of the world around them. They use it to process new thoughts and ideas. They use it to bring purpose and meaning in to everything they see and do. 

My children, of course, love to play. Sometimes they don't play together but when they do...it is magical. They play with Miss C's animals together or they'll build LEGO creations together. They love to play Minecraft together. When they are outside, they love to play on the trampoline or ride their bikes or play games together. 

I love this picture from Summer when Z and Miss C were playing at the park. Miss C was loving having Z push her on the swings. I can just picture her when she's older telling her children or grandchildren how her brother used to push her on the swings when they played together.
