Nonsensical play? Sound like nonsense? Unstructured play is important for people of all ages. Developing imagination, strengthening physical, cognitive and emotional skills and resiliency, collaborative and social skill building and laughter are some of the many benefits of free play. This workshop will focus on the importance of play and how to weave free play into education by using our senses. Understanding that by simply feeling, smelling, hearing, tasting and listening, our world becomes a playground once again. We will learn more about what plants and animals live in your neighbour-wood and how unstructured play gives space to learn about the stories of the natural world.
This workshop will invite you to explore your edges of comfort, since a lot of us have forgotten what it’s like to goof around! Come wander through the woods and experience some magic!
