Calling all superheroes: Developing superhero play in the early years
Wednesday 3rd Feb @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
Superheroes are a huge part of popular culture and many children naturally engage in superhero play. However, this type of play is not without its challenges in early years settings. How should we respond appropriately to children playing with weapons, or engaging in rough and tumble play?
In this FREE one-hour webinar, early years expert Tamsin Grimmer will address these difficult issues and explain:
- The benefits of superhero play and how you can embrace its many benefits
- How to differentiate between aggressive play and violence
- How to respond to weapon play
- How to instil ‘super’ qualities in our children through play.
