Embodied Play – Vancouver Public Labyrinth – False Creek Seawall

“At Embodied~Play,

one of the common experiences we have is to approach our own edges,

not just the children, but also the adults.

What are we comfortable with?

What newness can we try today?

What do we need to approach this edge?

Do we need trust, autonomy, spotting, space, slowness, a hand held, a watching eye, a team?

Each child has different edges,

and so this is where a flexible container really helps,

and where structured activities or one site-fits-all rules can really be a disservice to our children’s learning.

Embodied play, big impact, exploring space and our own boundaries, trusting our bodies and our judgement.”
