A poem about play

Found this today, play is learning !

When I play outside


  • I take risks
  • I face challenges
  • I solve problems
  • I make choices
  • I belong
  • I learn about my world
  • I discover and explore
  • I experiment
  • I imagine
  • I create
  • I take responsibility
  • I collaborate, communicate and co-operate
  • I lead
  • I can be noisy, messy and adventurous
  • I am independent
  • I am resilient
  • My body is strong
  • I learn about the natural world
  • I invent
  • I build
  • I am calmer and less anxious
  • I have a strong immune system
  • I wonder
  • I feel good about myself
  • I can be wild
  • I can be still
  • I find out what my body can do
  • I observe, I smell, I listen, I touch, I taste
  • I focus and concentrate
  • I feel connected to the natural world
  • I watch things grow
  • I explore mathematical and scientific concepts
  • I solve conflicts
  • I pretend
  • I am motivated
  • I am curious
  • I am master of my universe
  • I am healthy
  • I make up stories
  • I master physical skills
  • I have fun

Outdoor Play is NOT a waste of time
