waffle blocks play

Hidajeta
This morning, an educator offered waffle blocks to play and built with. Children started building them up and did it for a period of time. then, they decided that they would rather lay down onto them and have some rest. Some of them also showed empathy and role-play by patting each other off to sleep.

Hidajeta, thank you again for posting some images of children engaged in a physical activity based experience. As mentioned in previous posts,  portable equipment (like waffle blocks) encourages to to increase their levels of physical activity as they have the opportunity of incorporating these pieces of equipment into many different play based situations. It is always interesting to observe how children interact with equipment and how the engage with one another. The children appear to be the lead from each other in play, and imitating the role of educators at rest time.
