The Hill where we play everyday provides the children with props needed to create play scenarios. Moving up and down the Hill, weaving in and out of trees, garden items, bushes, plants, flowers and herbs, I smile when I happen upon evidence that the children have been there. Their touch is noticeable and kind to nature. They are respectful in honoring the items provided freely for their choice of play.
Sometimes for me, it’s only the evidence that children have been there in play, but at other times I am invited to join in the actual creation of play as in the photo to the right where the child is making flying bunny soup.
