An Activity to think about Play...

An idea from our keynote speaker, Annette Oliver.

Think Wonder, Imagination, Curiosity...

With a bag full of random, and I mean random items, invite children to do one of the following:

  • create a new game
  • tell a story
  • make a list of words that begin with the same letter as each item
  • describe ways in which they are different, and which they are the same..
  • use items to create a person or animal
  • create an invitation
  • sketch or create an invention.
  • make something that moves.

Our bag had pop caps, poker chips, small wooden blocks.
We created a train.  :)  

We also used this time to look at Twitter and other social media forms to tell our stories.  What a great discussion about telling our stories as we play!
