Research

Upon my research I came across this interesting article ( http://www.ncca.biz/aistear/pdfs/guidelines_eng/play_eng.pdf ) which discussed play within a childs environment. As i read onward there was one particular paragraph which sparked many ideas which helped me with my brainstorming.

This included the characteristics of play. It discussed how it should be the obvious which is enjoyable, but also noted an’adventurous yet risky element’. This one really stuck in my mind. In contrast I also like the ‘therapeutic’ elements. This opens a whole other realm when brainstorming my project. Furthering my reading in this article, it states the various types of play that exists. Play can be pretend play, play with rules, physical play, collaborative play… etc.
