In the wee small hours of the morning, I found myself scouring a beautiful and inspiring blog, Let the Children Play. The blog features beautiful photography and fantastic ideas for exploring creativity and the environment. It completely opened my eyes to the possibility for outdoor play reaching beyond playground, sandboxes, and play structures!Let the Children Play is an awesome blog that is authored by an Australian early childhood educator with nearly 20 years of experience working with children. The blog offers inspiration on ideas for play-based learning both indoors and out. The ideas and inspiration are endless, from block play to painting, to exploring the outdoors. My favorite topics include her insights on creating natural playscapes and inspiring learning environments. I’m including a link to my favorite article series; but be forewarned you may just find yourself glued to this blog for longer than you intended!!
