Balloons! Just Playing?
This week- a little trip down memory lane! These photos are from a few years ago when I brought home a giant bouquet of balloons!
Welcome to the weekly "Just Playing?" Blog Hop hosted here at Child Central Station. If this is your first week joining us- you may wish to learn more by visiting the "Just Playing?" landing page.
Last week- we looked at children playing with a giant cardboard box. I have updated the post to include additional insights into the learning that took place during the play. You can see the revised post here.
Now on to this week's photos:
We may be "just playing", but....
What are the children doing here?
What do you see?
What learning is taking place?
What skills are being practiced/developed?
Thank you for remembering that young children do not "just play." Young children play. They develop through play. They learn through play. They experiment through play. They grow through play. A child's work is play. Play is important!
Please take a moment to reflect upon the photos and questions above. I would love for you to share your observations in a comment. I'd also like to invite you to "hop" on over to all of the other bloggers who are sharing photos of children learning through play this week:
